Hi folks, need help as I'm not sure if I have PN damage but seems the only logical answer. I have a terrible searing pain in the left side of my labia that can extend into my what I can only describe as my rectum! This only happens during arousal (sorry if TMI) and can build to an alomost impossible cramp like pain...penetration is difficult as are smears and any gynae examination!
My Gynae consultant recommended an abdominal hysterectomy which I had 2 weeks ago also done for heavy bleeding and adhesions caused by previous gynae operations...they also removed the cervix...my hubby is a darling and so understanding, I honestly thought this would relieve my symptoms, however I am still having a "toothache" pain in my left buttock down to my knee and ankle...and on just slight arousal I am still feeling the beginnings of the searing pain on the left side of the labia! going into the vagina & rectum!! I'm devestated if I have gone through surgery (which I admit was also for other horrid symptoms) and I am now constantly worrying that intercourse will still be painful.
I was going to purchase one of those kegal8 machines to help the pelvic floor strenghten,
would this help me? Is there anything else I can do to help me and my hubby get back to a normal healthy relationship as I dont think I can cope if this were never to happen! A family member is an acupuncture practitioner and did help with the knee/ankle pain, also said she can undertake genital acupuncture but I'm obviously wary, has anyone had experience of this?
I am honestly desperate for anything that will stop this pain as my consutant just said (after quite a painful, uncomfortable examaination) and I quote "I've no idea what thats about!"
Sorry for the long post but I've reached desperation point!
