  • Decompression Surgery-Scar Tissue

    I had decompression surgery back in 2003 by Dr. Ansell in Houston (MAYO doctor was Dr. Stanley Antolak who unfortunately is retired and so i can no longer ask him this question), but i was wondering if anyone else who had decompression surgery "years ago" is now dealing with the pudendal nerve being re-entraped / irritated because of build-up of scar tissue from the decompression surgery? And if so, what can be done about it?

    Your physician should be able to come up with an answer for you. I hoe you'll get some answers from here as well.

      I did mention it to my Urogynecologist last year when i was having a flare-up of either IC or pudendal neuralgia and i mentioned to him, could the source of the pain quite possibly be from a build-up of scar tissue that is now re-pressing upon the pudendal nerve and his reply was just "yes that's what i was thinking too" and then when i asked him if we could simply go in and scrap it all out, he said that by doing that, it would cause more scar tissue and would end up in a non ending cycle. I'm just not sure i am completely satisfied with that response and so i was wondering if perhaps someone else has dealt with the issue and what they ended up doing. P.s..i sure miss Dr. Antolak, he was so knowledgeable about pudendal neuralgia/nerve entrapment syndrome
