Nerve block for rectal pain

Posted by labjano, on Sat Sep 14, 2019 1:26 pm

I have had many perineal fistula/abscess surgeries for Crohns Disease resulting in significant amount of scar tissue deep inside my rectal area. Now I have constant pain when I have to sit for any period of time. Has anyone heard of a perineal pelvic nerve block procedure? I'm trying to find a doctor that will do it. Any advice or names would be greatly appreciated. I've been pretty miserable for awhile.

Thanks,

Jan

So sorry you're suffering, Jan. Have your doc(s) pinpointed the source of the pain? I know some of the pain management docs do nerve blocks. I hope you find relief soon.

Hello labjano. 

I had never heard of perineal pelvic nerve block procedure, but thank you very much for drawing it to my attention. I have looked it up on the internet and it appears to be available on the NHS. However, the fact that it is only a temporary solution and the possible side-effects would need to be considered carefully before I would contemplate opting for this approach.  Nonetheless these things are worth knowing about.

Best wishes

Bill

Thank you. I have an appt on the 25th with my primary Dr to get a referral to a pain clinic that does this type of procedure.

Thank you for the advise. I will continue to research this and hopefully find a permanent solution. Wish I could just shop on Amazon and purchase a brand new bum instead!

Take care

Jan

Hello Jan.

I just love the concept of being able to shop on Amazon for a new bum. However, in my case I would probably be looking for a full body transplant!

Best wishes
