    Dr. Towfigh – Neurectomy

    Hey Otzi,

    Dr. Chen did check for hernia when he operated on me last week, but did not find anything. An ilioinguinal nerve block may be a good next step. The problem in my experience with nerve blocks is that they do not last long, and my pain is not necessarily always present at the time of the block, so it’s difficult for me to tell if they worked or not.

    My cord stripping procedure was done at the level of the pubic tubercle, so the ilioinguinal nerve should not have been affected, but I guess it’s possible. I have no clue what could be causing the pain still. It’s definitely very frustrating.
