I had abdominal surgery twice in six weeks and i now have an entraped nerve. I"m getting nerve blocks, but they where off every 15 days or so.
any suggestions?

Meds: Prevacid, Lexapro, Xanex, some pain meds.

May God give you a reason to smile today, an extra reason to laugh, and bring joy to your soul.

Not sure if ur refering to the same thing, but i had a csection in 2003, and the nerve pain never went away. I complained to my ob about it all the time, he told me that a nerve must have gotten trapped in the inscision. I had abdominal surgery for ovarian cyst and was opened via section scar, ob wanted to try to get the nerve out. anyways, i am back to normal now....if it's so bad that u need meds or blocks, it might be worth it to have surgery to release it. How long ago was ur surgeries? Mine was 4yrs inbetween, so plenty of time to recover from the first surgery. good luck, shannon

Hi there,

  I have the exact same thing as I've never met anyone with an abdominal nerve entrapement! I had my gall bladder removed 7 years ago, therefore leaving me with a nerve entrapement in the abdominal wall at T-10. I have done trigger point injections and many radio frequency procedures. Yes, they all do wear off eventually....sometimes people get more and more relief with each one...which I did for awhile until they no longer work much at all.

  I've had this pain for over 7 years and am now on oxycodone daily. They have tried to go operate on 2 separate occasions to remove/tease out the nerve. Neither surgery worked due to it being very very difficult to just remove a nerve. It looks no different than any other nerves, so it is a bit of a hit or miss. Then you worry about the possibility of more scar tissue with each surgery. It is definitely worth exploring...I just wanted to give you my feedback and what I have gone through.

  I truly hope this is not the case for you! If you find someone willing to operate or any other ideas they come up with...please please please let me know! I will do the same for you...dont give up hope!! Keep me posted and hugs to you
