Today we did a follow up treatment on a gentleman who is well into his 70s, who in the 1980s had an inguinal hernia and underwent a mesh graft.
Severe Pain Developing
He did fine after surgery, but within the last couple of years he has been developing severe pain in the area of the right inguinal region with radiation down into the testicle. He saw a urologist and he was told that he did not have a hernia and there was nothing wrong with his graft. We did note however, that he has a history of diabetes mellitus, and had a history of being a runner at an early age and had spinal stenosis.
Closer Examination Reveals Testicular Pain Source
On careful examination however, I determined that he had an entrapment of the ilioinguinal, genitofemoral and lateral femoral cutaneous nerves going through the mesh graft and it was referring pain down to the testicular area.
I put him through a two-session treatment course of ilioinguinal, genitofemoral, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks with ultrasound guidance in the area of the abdomen, the inguinal
ligament and along the scrotal region. After the treatment sessions, he comes back today and says the pain is 100% resolved and he is back to exercising and walking six to seven miles a day.
We provide this case study to give an example of a patient who was able to resolve his radiating testicular pain, after only two sessions of nerve block treatment. This patient is once again able to maintain an active lifestyle, free from pain.
