Chronic pain 3 months after surgery
I had bi-lateral hernia surgery on December 3, 2020. During the first three weeks after surgery I had significant muscle pain and swelling which finally resolved. However after three weeks post surgery I started getting significant burning nerve pain in the skin of my scrotum, penis and the bottom of my feet.
The strange thing is the pain is not constant but follows a typical pattern every day. When I wake up in the morning, sometimes there is no pain but it escalates throughout the day and evening. The surgeon who did my surgery says its nothing to do with the surgery and washed his hands of me. I was not in any pain before surgery.
The theory by one particular doctor who is an expert in pudendal neuralgia is that I have muscle spasms that are compressing my pudendal nerves.
This situation has caused me chronic pain and depression. I don’t know if its directly due to the surgery or the stress during the first three weeks caused my muscles to spasm.
Has anyone experienced anything similar or have any thoughts on this?
