Can nerve damage cause abdominal pain?
Ct did show degenerative disk disease at l4-5/s1
In your case no.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question and understand your concerns.
In your case, the answer is no, degenerative disc disease at the L4-L5 level may cause low back pain that may radiate in leg(s), but not in your abdomen.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Since you had surgery, it’s possible that small nerves that supply the abdominal wall may be damaged or compressed by the fibrous tissue formation the after surgery.
Unfortunately it can’t be confirmed by tests such imaging, clinical examination and exclusion of other possible causes is necessary.
Parting from the location of the pain, urinary bladder conditions should be excluded first.
Hope this helps.
