Neuroma question

Last summer I had multiple abdominal surgeries 3 in all.  I had multiple incisions as a result but one incision site was used in all three surgeries.  After the final surgery I noticed my abdomen was numb around the multiple incision site but was not bothersome and after some time the feeling began to return.  I also had problems with this site healing and took around 6 months to fully heal closed. This resulted in a very long and wide scar.  The other incisions healed up very nice and are barely visible.  Several months ago I began experience a very severe stabbing pain at this incision site and a general ache with pain levels varying depending on the activity.  This incision site is also right on my waist line and is easily irritated by clothing.  The pain is becoming more constant and have been back to my GP and surgeon.  CT scan doesnt show and hernia or adhesions.  Surgeon believes I have developed a neuroma at the incison and have been referred to pain management for trigger point injections.  Are these injections the solution to solving the pain issue or eventually will I need another surgery to remove all the scar tissue?
