After 32 mths of debilitating pain in lower back/right groin/pubic area I have developed difficulty in emptying my bladder and need to push hard. The orthopaedic consultant has asked for an urgent MRI scan and I have been referred to gynaecology. (Tests have shown my bowel and bladder to be normal). No one has mentioned pudendal nerve entrapment but I am afraid I might have this and I am concerned that I won't get appropriate treatment at this hospital. My GP said "We do not want you to lose control of your bladder and bowel functions".
