Dear Kayci, I am so sorry to hear about all your pain & surgeries. You have come to the right place. Everyone here is very supportive. I had a nerve block done, I am not sure what kind it was. It wasnt successfull & then that dr gave up on me after telling me there was more he could try. I think that most of us has had a hysterectomy hoping to get rid of the pain, only for it to return. It did take my pain 2 yrs to return after my hysterectomy, but I have been in pain since. Good luck in your block, I hope it works for you. robin
