Who has had pudendal nerve injections by an interventional radiologist guided by cat scan. I am waiting for one scheduled for Dec in Canada

explain about the procedure and did you or did you not get relief? Any history of endometriosis or recurring enodometriosis? I still bellieve mypain is from recurring endometriosis but my gyno wants me to try this because I have had two surgeries for endo since my hysterectomy in 1987 and the surgery now would be technically challenging and I would be at greater risk for harm to other nearby organs such as my bowel..bladder etc..Really tough decision so trying pudendal nerve block first..

Yes, have a long history of endometriosis and surgeries but not hysterectomy. I had several CT guided nerve blocks. After an Alcock's canal block the region was numbed and I was able to walk a short distance. Eventually had surgery with a neurosurgeon.

Who is your gynaecologist ? I guess you're in the Toronto area ?

A question if you don't mind. What surgery did the neurosurgeon perform?

Laproscope to remove areas that appeared may be endometriosis lesions/ Pathology report showed not endo.

Are you able to tell me how the nerve block (assuming you had it) worked, and how you are now?

The first nerve block had no effect, the second enabled me to walk for a short time but it didn't last long term.

Nerve block done in hospital...guided by CT....the block did not stop the pain. I ended up having the surgery but no endo showed on tissue removed on the pathology report. Dr. says likely nerve pain but I am not convinced of that. Following for further MRI......taking hydromorphone to deal with continuous pain in vagina and rectum.
