    Dr. Towfigh – Neurectomy

    Based on your description, you may have a genitofemoral and/or ilioinguinal nerve injury.

    Did you get local anesthetic injection by your pain doctor? This should help. It’s a bit difficult to do for that nerve in particular. If your pain doc can’t do it, seek one who can.

    You may also have an occult inguinal hernia. Dynamic ultrasound or MRI pelvis should help discuss this.

    I can help you if you wish to drive up a couple of hours. Dr Chen is also an excellent resource, also in Los Angeles.

    I don’t recommend re operation unless you have no long term improvement in your symptoms or if you have an inguinal hernia as the cause of your symptoms.

    Btw, did your original preoperatice pain ever get better?
