My boyfriend is a C-5 C6 since 1992. He had an emergency surgery almost 7 years ago and woke up with chronic and severe pain ever since. His baselevel is a six and it goes up from there 365 24/7. The pain is in his lower abdominal area. After many years of testing and research it appears to be nerve pain. He had a hypogastric nerve block last Tuesday. In recovery he said he felt no different than before and by that night he was in excruciating pain. The pain has gotten better but it is still worse than prior to the procedure. He can't get back in to see his doctor until Thursday. Has anyone else out there had a nerve block? Pros and cons? Similar experience?
