Dear Becky, I have had this injection, I believe. I went to a pain clinic and was given a nerve block. It's an injection of steroids and something like lanacane to the nerve (the iliolingual nerve). Theoretically, this should, of course, numb the nerve and eliminate the pain. I've heard very good things about them. However, mine didn't work. It depends on whether or not your adhesions are actually affecting the nerve. If not, this won't work, but there's really no way to know without trying it. I will tell you this: it was NOT a painful procedure even if it sounds nasty. It was probably worse for my husband to watch it than it was for me to undergo it. Good luck. Ellen
