I am trying to gather as much information as possible in regard to my pain in my Anus. Its very specific and on the right side. My surgeon felt it was nerve damage. I begin to read about the pneudual (sp?) nerve that goes to the rectum and during pelvic surgery it can be damaged. After 8 months of excruciating pain, not wanting to take pain medications, he sent me to a anestisiologist (sp?) to have a nerve block. I have had two, one recently. I still have pain in that part of my anus, especially when I have to irrigate every 7 days or so for the mucus from my rectal stump. I am trying to find out how many people suffer from this. I can't keep getting nerve blocks and I feel like they work at first for about a week, then they stop working. I am wondering if its nerve pain or something else like a fistula, or something to do with the inner/outer sphincters? I am so at a lost, but perhaps someone here will have the same thing and tell me what works/worked for them. Thank you.
