Had block done thursday…had maybe some minor relief so far but nothing great. Still can feel some minor discomfort in stomach groin were injection was inserted.
I am still thinking of a left sided orchimectomy in future if things dont improve. Does anyone know if this type of nerve block is any type of diagnostics as to orchimectomys chances of pain relief.
As far as I understand a cord block would be more for this type of diagnostics. My pain managment doctor said this block would at least help my urologist know which nerves we are dealing with. Just asking cause i dont want get in to an argunment in my follow up with uro if he tells me removal chances of pain relief are lower because this inguinal block didnt work.
Im assuming if this block would have worked they would have looked at a futher treatment on this nerve path.
Pain is still localised to bottom of left testicle and worsened by touch or sitting/laying.
Over 6 months now since my epididymectomy and i have noticed a slight improvement last 2 months but maybe only 10 percent. Im shit scared of removel incase things get worse cause i couldnt deal with it so im trying to hold of long as possible and praying my body with heal some.
Thanks for any input !
