It’s been 5 weeks since I had the GF ablated. The specific pain along the spermatic cord above the testicle remains gone.
I’m convinced that this WAS a legitimate pain source that’s been resolved OR, more probably, cross talking of nerves from another root cause.
I’ve had a ton of perineal and groin pain. Pelvic PT insists I do not have clinical PN (said I’m nowhere near her real PN patients in pain or limitations) but says my left-side pelvic floor muscles, internally and externally, are extremely tight. Yesterday, thankfully, she spent 45 minutes all external massage and used some metal tools (Hawk brand if that means anything). Rough on the skin, but man-oh-man, I could feel knots releasing. Walked 30 minutes on the treadmill and 22 on the elliptical last night with no pain until the last 4-5 minutes.
I talked with her at length about my case. She’s uncertain about the vasectomy’s role in this and is really intent on laying blame on bicycling. My knots are right where the seat meets the pelvic floor.
Anyway, I’m getting some relief from Pelvic PT, and the pain remains outside the scrotum. I still think at some point, though, I may have to face the potential of having a perineal nerve removed.
I spoke with Dr. Dellon’s protoge, Dr. Williams, and he suggested that Dellon frequently removes branches of the pudendal like the perineal but that the base pudendal is very, very hard to treat.
Time will tell, but at 19 months, I’m getting frustrated.
