  • hypogastric plexus block Side effects!?!

    I had a hypogastric plexus block done for pelvic pain. IC and Endo. They won't prescribe pain meds because I'm so young (32) and won't do a hysterectomy to help with the endo for the same reasons. I've had nerve ablations done for my back before with no issues.

    So I had it done @ 7am this morning. Now I have shooting pain and tingling down my right leg, all the way to my foot, and I've pottied myself twice. I'm always a little incontinent with my bladder, but I'm having issues with my bowel too.

    I know lots of people of this site have had this. Any advice? They are pushing really hard for the implant, and I'm really hesitant to do that, and this isn't helping any.

    My urogynocologist is also pushing for more lupron instead of a hyster, and I'm hesitant for that as well. I can't find any positive long term notations about it, and this will be my third 3 month dose in a year. I also had it at age 19 for 9 months. Any advice would be welcome.

    Thank you!

    You might want to think about a second opinion since it sounds like you have some concerns about what is being recommended for you.

    Stay safe
