I recently had a procedure in my vagina as recommended by my gynaecologist. He said he would inject the tender area with steroid and anaesthetic. This tenderness followed childbirth and it only felt tender upon touch about 5cm inside. Since the injection 5 weeks ago, it now feels so much worse. Tingly, burning and irritated all of the time. I went back to see the gynae who ruled out infection and just said that there was no reason for me to feel like this as it shouldn't have caused a problem. It obviously has and I would like to hear if others have had this and if it will settle. I do have pudendal nerve damage which has always affected my rectum but now I have this. He never informed me it was a pudendsl nerve block, he actually called it hydra dissection of vaginal tissues using anaesthetic and steroid. I just feel so fed up.
