She was complaining of left hip pain by December again, however, so a second arthroscopic procedure was performed in March. At that time, the plaintiff’s anterior labrum was found to be hyperplastic and edematous, so a cartilaginous flap on the femoral head, as well as the anterior labrum, were reduced. Although she reported no pain at her follow-up appointment, the plaintiff presented again in April complaining of groin pain and increased hip irritability on passive range of motion.
The plaintiff underwent a total hip replacement in July and had excellent response and elimination of hip pain. The groin pain, however, returned in early 2006. She described it as extending from the femoral pulse region to the knee and posterior. Half of her sling was removed in May and her pain was totally relieved until August, when it returned again. Further testing revealed degenerative disc disease, so the plaintiff underwent an L4 nerve block, which relieved her pain for about three days. In March 2007, her TVT was again revised and no undo inflammation or obtrusion was noted intraoperatively. A segment of mesh was resected in November, but her left groin pain continued and she received a series of pudendal nerve injections through September 2008. The plaintiff ultimately underwent a pudendal nerve entrapment release in September 2008. She continues to be treated for chronic regional pain syndrome.
