Hi
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Have they tried a nerve block on you yet?

hi, no nerve block as not been mentioned
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
In this case, I would recommend you discuss this with your urologist. A nerve block can be therapeutic and stop the pain. If the pain returns, then your doctor will know that the pain is nerve related and they can consider doing a procedure to strip the nerves away called a neurolysis. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.

my urologist as said that the next step is to send me for pain management, would this include a nerve block?
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Pain specialists are typically the ones who perform the nerve blocks. Hope this helps and please don't forget to leave a rating when you are done. Thanks
