How are doing now Patience? I'm doing well. My pelvic floor therapist has been doing all sorts of alternative therapies using acupressure along with internal massage. It's doing the trick along with keeping stools soft and good toilet habits of course.

Hey SueMac, so sorry I never got a notification for your post and just saw it. I'm doing all right, got trigger point injections yesterday for the obdurator internus and transverse perenei muscles. The doctor also injected an older scar from skin surgery because it's more sensitive than such an old scar should be. All the injections used lidocaine. Now it remains to be seen if this helps with the pain during and after a BM. If it does help, then they will do a pudendal nerve block next.

So far so good, the injections have relaxed my pelvic floor during bowel movements, making them less painful. I've been in pain so long that this is almost unbelievable. I don't know how long it will last, but I'm doing my best to keep the area from tensing up unconsciously, which might undo the benefits. Pudendal nerve block coming up next on Monday.

Good to hear that you are improving as well. I think you will be pain free eventually if you're continuously improving.

I had a pudendal nerve block on Monday, and the numbness it produced was a relief really. I was able to have an even more painless BM yesterday, despite the numb feeling wearing off. Hoping I can keep up the gains until I start PT again, and make more permanent progress.

I'm still doing ok. I have almost no pain if I have a certain 'type' of BM, i.e. not too wide or funny shaped. Beyond that type, the pain is similar to what I had previously. At least I've had some improvement, so all those needle pokes weren't for nothing!
