Nerve damage following hernia op

Hi I have had pain down my left side & left testicle for over 10 years following a hernia repair with mesh.. I take 600mg pregabalin per day (Lyrica) it makes me very tired

It helps a bit and I also use patches.

I have been to pain clinic & St Thomas' in London and tried nerve blocks & nuro modulation & blocks in spine but pain continues. I am due to see consultant at my local hospital again in May.

Has anyone had pain stopped after nerve damage? I do not want to take tablets for the rest of my life.

Thanks for reading this

Re: Nerve damage following hernia op


I read all your condition kindly go to proper surgeon and do a surgery there are many treatments available on nerve .After that you can continue your life without tablet
Other than surgery the treatments are
Physical therapy and rehabilitation
Massage therapy
