I could do with some advice, especially from anyone who has PN. I've had this nearly 7 years now, after a clumsy surgeon operating on me for a prolapse but he wouldn't believe me when I said I was in agony after, so because of his refusal it took years to find out what was wrong. I've had nerve blocks and take 150 mgs of pregabalin and 10mg of amitriptyline. I take as low a dose as I can, as even this amount leaves me a bit spaced out. I've been on pain management courses but that hasn't helped. I've had nerve blocks, acupuncture and recently physio but it wasn't hands on. The physio exercises have helped a bit but they say they should be started as soon as possible after injury, so as I only started them a few months back, it was a long time after the injury. For the last month I've been having a really bad flare up. I haven't been examined for years, but last March I was offered an examination under a general anaesthetic and the appointment has just arrived, to have this examination done in The New Year at a London hospital. Would I be mad not to go for it? I'm nervous as there was another dr in the room when this was offered and I said I'd like to go for it, as I couldn't feel any worse. The other dr said oh but you could. She then realised how insulting this was to the other dr and said oh I'm not talking about your surgery. This is playing on my mind and I can't stop thinking about this comment and desperately need some advice please.
