Suffering from constant pain in perennial part

As the time of my first delivery in 1989, my gynaecologist had performed midline episiotomy. As a result, I was in pain in perennial portion initially for about 8 months. I had constant discomfort and bowl movement was affected due to which I had no satisfaction of complete evacuation. Now, after a gap of 26 years, deep pain again surfaced in perennial region which my gynaecologist says is due to trapping of pudendal nerve in the scar which is developed after midline episiotomy, and suggested a surgery to excise the scar tissue and release the pudendal nerve. I am scared and want to avoid surgery ( which if fails would aggravate my pain and discomfort). I also met another doctor who are specialised in pain management ( who inject and block the nerve ) but in India, this is not a very developed and a known treatment. I read articles about Dr. Lee Dellon from USA who is known to have cured many patients with similar medical problem. I do not have any other information about Dr. Dellon except what I learned on the internet. Will it be good idea to consult Dr. Dellon for my medical problem? This involves lot of expenses and sort of risk for me to go to Dr. Dellon. Can I get some advice on this ( about approaching Dr. Dellon). Many thanks. Anita Bhise

Hi, Anita Bhise.

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHer today.

Unfortunately, I cannot make such a decision for you. My advice is to make another appointment with the doctor who would be doing the surgery and go over all the details (again). Perhaps tell him or her about this Dr. Dellon and what he does and see what your doctor says. There is always a risk from any surgery, but you don't know that the surgery will fail, either. I would go over all this with your doctor before doing anything else. Good luck to you. Keep us posted.

Thanks Helena for your response and advice. I thought I would first try non surgical pain management if that helps and then go for surgery if pain management does not help. I am scared to go through surgery knowing that surgeon I have been consulting has not performed similar surgery ( to excise scar tissue to release pudendal nerve before). There are few good surgeons in Mumbai but do not know how skilful they are in this kind of surgery. I will inform my surgeon about Dr. Dellon and his knowledge and experience in this aspect. Thank you again for writing. I will keep you posted as I proceed. Many thanks again. Best regards. Anita

Hi again!

I totally understand wanting to try something nonsurgical first.
Let me know what you decide and how you are, either way.

All the best,
