A couple of years ago, the hernia surgery was done and everything was fine. Exactly one year ago, I started to get pain at point of incision. The doctors are confused and nobody will admit (accept for my pain management doctor) that it is being caused by adhesions. His theory is that the adhesions from my surgery is pushing or trapping a nerve in that area. Nothing can be done. The only alternative is a device that would be plugged into your spine and give you stimuli upon pressing a button. I don't know about you, but I am 38, otherwise healthy, and not willing to put something near my spine to shoot electric shocks into my body. Anyway, I am on a nerve blocking agent Neurotrypline (Sp).
