I cannot remember how soon I noticed the instability but there are pains all around the core: the pelvic rim on my sides pubic bone pain and low back which can also be SI joint dysfunction. I fell in mid July and my pelvic alignment went out and all those pains returned, PT is working on them to get me straightened out as well as acupuncture. It will sort out but takes time. I have sometimes held alignment between appointments. Even knowing this I would still get surgery because I got relief of enough pain to continue working at least enouh to keep my job and sit more and do some things. I was heading too far downhill to continue that path.
2007-08 pelvic muscles spasms (per colon-rectal dr.) treated by ElectroGalvanicStimulis(EGS). 6/27/10 sat too long on a hard chair- spasms, EGS not work Botox help, spine pain dr cortisone shots in coccyx help, still pain, PT found PNE & sent me to Dr Marvel nerve blocks & MRN, TG left surgery 5/9/11. I have chronic bunion pain started/surgery at age 21. TG gave me back enough sitting to keep my job and join in some social activities. I wish the best to everyone!

pudendal nerve blocks

Postby hopeman » Tue Sep 09, 2014 10:52 am

Hi everyone

I have performed three pudendal nerve blocks at the SSL level for my right side during one month. Each block allowed my sitting pain disappear for 5 hours after blocks. For my right side, my pain focus in prineum. I do not have rectal pain for the right side. After three blocks, my prineal pain disappear. However, I still have scrotum and penis pain. I do not feel numbness for preneum after block. I guess I should have one or two block at Alcock canal to cure my prineum pain. Because my doctor do not how to do block at Alcock canal. I am considering to switch to another doctor to perform the fourth block at Alcock canal next week. I hope the fourth block can cure my prineum pain. However, most doctors only perform three pudendal blocks at max. Can more than three pudendal netve blocks during one month (e.g. four or five blocks) damage pudendal nerve? Should I wait to perform another series of pn blocks focusing at Alcock canal? If I need to wait, how long should I wait?

Hopeman, I'm glad to hear you are having some improvements.

Prof Robert states in his article that no more than 3 nerve blocks with anesthetic and steroids should be given "for fear of deterioration". He's a neurosurgeon. ... Robert.pdf

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.
