I have had 12 surgeries to remove trans vaginal mesh, causing nerve injury and/or damage.
It's been about a year since the last removal, supposed to have removed all the remaining mesh. The pain is still here, I have had numerous blocks, ablations, physical therapy....
I am just wondering if the nerves ever heal? Is there any way to image the pelvic nerves in order to see if there is any severe damage or compression by scar tissue or maybe pelvic tendon/fascia that has moved and is pressing on nerves? My pelvic floor doctor here in town says more surgery will only cause more scar tissue! But if surgery removes scar tissue or releases a tendon wouldn't that be worth it? The pain is really overwhelming me,(it's all I think about these days) it's been here for 10 years and I am ready to just give up. I have been on opiates, now on gabapentin only.
My recent addition is medical marijuana, here in Michigan medical marijuana is legalized, so I have my card. I take a tincture once a day which helps as well.
If anyone has any ideas/experience on long term nerve recovery I welcome any and all suggestions and personal stories.
thank you everyone for your kind support!
