Hi Tracie,

It is common for people with PN have bowel problem. Part of the reason could be that the pudendal nerve innervates the anal sphincter, or it could be related to the pelvic floor being overly tense. Constipation can be a problem with PN.

With your history of MVA I am wondering if you had an MRI to rule out any problems at the lumbosacral or lumbo sacral plexus area. Do you have a good physiotherapist or manual therapist to assess for any musculoskeletal issues?

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

Thanks for your reply, I've had many MRI but problem is I have so much metal plate about 10 inches across scrum area and hips and pelvis the metal makes everything so distorted. As far as the care I need I would have to drive 2-3 hours.

Oh, well the metal definitely complicates things. Driving that far for PT also complicates things but maybe you could at least have an evaluation and maybe they could give you some techniques to use at home. Hopefully Dr. Hibner will be able to help you.

Thanks again for your response. Hoping evaluation will get some answers. Maybe home exercise program. Glad this organization is here, this is a horrible disorder that needs to get more attention. I was a nurse before the accident changed my life. Sad that most of the doctors I have seen don't really have a clue about the pudendal nerve.

Hi Traci,

You have certainly been through a dreadful life change from the MVA. I hope you will be able to find some answers and some treatments/therapies that help.
