    Neurectomy with 2nd surgery

    Doctor Towfigh

    I am in Massachusetts do you recommend any doctors near me that are well versed in pain management after mesh removal surgery? I have met with Doctor Earle once but I am not sure if nerve related issues are his forte. Certainly doctor Earle is a skilled hernia surgeon.

    Also what would you recommend as an approach to treatment? I am afraid that medications, physical therapy. Nerve block Injections and various other modalities result in temporary relief and are not a long term solution. Half the battle is knowing what is actually causing my issues. I believe it is nerve related but cannot determine if it is neuroma, nerve entrapment, or what. This is further complicated by the fact that proper neurectomy can result in aberrant nerve sprouting and possibly not provide permanent relief.

    I do know that I do not have a hernia recurrence. I am puzzled to think I may still have non nerve related issues this late in my recovery?

    No win situation.
