been diagnosed wiith pressure on my femoral nerve on the left leg due
to pressure on it by a hernia repair patch.  I have received a nerve block injection for  the inquinal nerve under the hernia patch and now the patch is putting pressure on and causing severe  pain to  the left thigh down to the knee cap and calf.   Any opinions on this condition.

Umpire, I am late replying to your thread. I do want to welcome you to this forum. It is filled with people who truly do care. I don't think you can find a better group of people. This forum will offer you support, understanding and compassion. I do invite you to share with what you are comfortable doing so.

I am sorry that I don't know much about your conditiion. But I do care and I offer you support. Are you under the care of a pain management doctor? How is this condition being treated? I do hope you are able to get some relief from your pain. And again, I welcome you here. Sorry I couldn't help any more than that.

Hi umpire and welcome!! I'm sorry I didn't get to this until tonight. Wow, that one sounds miserable. I would certainly call the pharmacist where you filled the prescription and ask if they have any suggestions on relocating the patch, if you can, or something anyway. Then come Monday I'd be on the phone to the doc. Since this is something already prescribed to you I think you'd be safe going to the ER if it gets really bad over the weekend. You won't be asking for any pain meds (which turns off the ER folks) but just why it's acting like it is and what you could do about it.

Please let us know what you find out. Those patches have caused some problems over the years but in the long run they do seem like a great option for many folks with CP.
