nerve damage from csection...possibly removing nerves

I some how ended up with nerve damage near my csection scar. I have excruciating pain all day long. Feels like burning, stabbing, shocking, slicing...if its cold it feels worse and if the area is touched it feels worse. I have had nerve block injections and a procedure to burn the area and they haven't worked at all. I've seen 4 pain management specialist also. I have now been referred to a Surgeon for possible surgery to remove my nerves but Im not sure that it is something I want to do. I'm deathly afraid of ever haveing surgery again since that is how I ended up with the injury in the first place. I'm wondering if anyone can give me their opinion on this or if anyone is familiar with this unusual condition I ended up with.

I have had patients with this problem.  Acupuncture is very helpful for nerve pain.  and helping the body re-establish nerve pathway's.  Seek a qualified acupuncturist in your area.
Hope this helps
