I used to be treated w/ nerve blocks that worked well for a while. I have severe nerve damage in my foot. After the blocks started to fail, we tried radiofrequency, which has worked very well, and i have not needed a proceedure for 7mo now!
What type of stomach surgery will u be having? I also had a hysterectomy (which is assme u r NOT having :) but ended up with a entrapped nerve in my inscision. I have had 4 blocks for them in the groin area, and nothing has worked, so im headed back to surgery by the end of this month. I guess sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't....good luck, i hope u have luck with them.
