  • Groin pain from hernia op

    I had a mesh repair 2013. Continuing ache in area extends into side of scrotum. MRI showed some nerve abnormality in GFG branch. Nerve block to IG nerve higher up worsened pain. I need advice on neurectomy or other procedures. I have seen Dr. Ramshaw but am reluctant to have mesh removal.

    Dear rc009
    it is important to try to determine the etiology of your pain. It may be related to a damaged nerve, the mesh, a recurrent hernia, damage to the spermatic cord. Once the etiology the pain has been determined then an appropriate treatment plan can be implemented.
    Nerve pain usually causes burning of the skin, mesh pain is usually deep and gets worse with movements. Spermatic cord pain makes sexual activities difficult. a recurrent hernia should be identified on physical examination. Trigger point injections can be very helpful.
    regards.
