Has anyone suffered Pudendal Nerve Damage following a hysterectomy?

Posted , 4 users are following.

We live in New Zealand.  Our Daughter had a hysterectomy a year ago and soon after, had a 'sore' feeling.  It appears it may be pudendal nerve damage.  She's had a nerve block operation, which didn't work and is so low and depressed and in so much pain and is on a cocktail of medications for depression and anxiety.  Nothing seems to be helping her. Has anyone else suffered this problem and if so, please let us know if you've found a cure or at least relief.  We are so worried about her.  Thank you for reading this.

    Hi there. I had a sub total failed laparoscopic abdominal hysterectomy to my last April. I ended up in intensive care quite poorly as my bladder was fused to my cervix.

    I had too many abdominal adhesions and was in theatre most of the day. I have been left with severe lower back pain and chronic pelvic pain. I have had a puedenal.nerve block to no avail. I have had a couple of other blocks also that were unsuccessful. As I kept my ovaries I have been told to have a injection to stop my ovaries working that might help with the pain. I'm against this as I do not wish to go through a medical menopause and have more symptoms.

    I have been left on antidepressants and many pain reliving medications. I am in constant pain and I really do not see a light at the end of the tunnel.

      Hi.  I'm so sorry you've suffered too.  My Daughter is on medication for depression and has had a failed block.  She is at her wit's end like you.  We don't know what way to turn either, but if we do find something, we'll certainly be in touch.  Best foot forward, chin up.

    What part of NZ are you in? Anil Sharma who consults next to Ascot Hospital in Auckland is really great. Was your Daughter done public or privately? Are some of her problems due to surgically induced menopause?

      Hi there Robyn!  We live in Whangarei, Northlands.  The hysterectomy was done at the local hospital publically.  Her problems are due to nerve damage during the operation.  Our daughter is having a battle on her hands with ACC., but we're hoping they'll come to the party eventually, as she's had a lot of treatment privately too and also an MRI scan and blocks.  As if being in pain for over a year isn't bad enough, she's got this fight on her hands too, poor little mite.  Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to me, I'll let her know about Anil Sharma.  Have a safe day. x
