Hello everyone, The pudendal nerve is a sensory, autonomic, and motor nerve that carries signals to and from the genitals, anal area, and urethra. There are slight differences in the nerve branches for each person but typically there are three branches of the nerve on each side of the body; a rectal branch, a perineal branch and a clitoral/penile branch. I am a 26 year old women and over a year ago I had a laparoscopic appendix surgery. Due to the surgeon's error she damaged my Pudendal Nerve,left behind a small piece of my appendix and also damaged other nerves around my pelvis. Since then I've had multiple hospitals, procedures and doctors visits. My life changed drastically and know experience depression. Her error made me a disable person. Due to the complexity of my case and her medical error most of the doctors I see do not want to continue the care or are afraid of being involved. Having a pudendal nerve damage is extremely RARE since it was an appendectomy. Therefore, I'm seeking help to pay my medical bills and mostly to see a doctor in AZ that is an expert with pudendal nerve damage. My goal is to try to get my life better then advocate and help fund raise for this disease since most doctors are not experts due to being rare. There's HOPE.
