Pudendal surgery with Dr. Hibner - Sept 24th

Postby nyt » Thu Sep 20, 2012 1:51 pm

Of this morning for Phoenix with my mom. Will have my left pudendal decompression surgery on Monday, Sept. 24th with Dr. Hibner.

At a later date I will update the forum on some new treatments I've been doing over the last 9-12 months that have made a HUGE difference for me. It has been slow going but progress has been steady. My right side has improved since my pudendal surgery 1.5 years ago but I'm not cured. Unfortunately, the RSD has moved into the surgical site which has given me a different challenge. I am concerned the RSD will move into the left surgical site but I'm hopeful with my new treatments that this will not happen.

I'll update everyone if there are any new treatments or surgical techniques that Dr. Hibner is doing once I'm up to it. And at some point I will update everyone on my treatments.

I'm going to tell Dr. Hibner he better have the scar on my left side the same as the right so that I'm symmetrical :lol: !

We will not need photographic evidence of symmetry nyt . . . . although ????? hmmmm ;) However we do need you to get well soon. Hope it all goes fantastically for you (well as fantastic as getting a matching scar can go)
All the luck imaginable.
take tons of care,

You are a brave gal, NYT. We will be anxiously awaiting good news. ;)

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.
