Went back to see Pain Management today, second visit since the GF nerve block on 8/22. At the 3-week mark, I was still very sore in the groin/crease. The doc appeared worried then, I think, that I might’ve had some damage, but those pains went away a few days later. Just took some stretching, baths, etc. I’m back to baseline with sharp pains on the left side of the scrotum.
Based on the initial positive response to the GF block (even though it wore off and the steroid hasn’t really helped), he agreed that ablating the nerve is a logical next step. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get scheduled for 4 weeks…having it Halloween morning.
I’ll keep everyone posted on how it goes. I’m hoping it turns out to be a good interim step before succumbing to denervation or neurectomy.
