History of hysterectomy and posterior repair. Have chronic duodenal neuralgia. How to help the pain?

Hi, i have had a hysterectomy and posterior repair in 2007 and have had the mesh all removed and vaginal wall rebuilt. I suffer from chronic puedenal neuralgia as well as vaginal, rectal,tailbone and left thigh pain since then. My pain is constant sharpe shooting, tingling and stabbing pain. I have had 8 puedenal blocks as well as a hypogastric block and gangelon block at tailbone with no relief. Is there anything that I can do to help with this pain other than meds and more surgeries?

Thank you for posting your query.
It is unfortunate that you are suffering from pain despite surgery and nerve blocks.
You would benefit from neuropathic pain medications such as gabapentin, pregabalin and duloxetine.
You can get these medications on a doctor's prescription.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
