will bruised pudendal nerve heal?

2 doctor answers
Dr. Harry Dollahite

Yes it should: The pudendal nerve is a peripheral nerve enervating the perineal region. Contusion to this nerve can occur with a bicycle seat, horseback riding, or surgical management of femoral fractures with traction applied over a perineal post. Areas of diminished sensation in the perineal region generally improve over time, indicative of pudendal nerve recovery. Permanent injury would be rare, but possible.

Sometimes: They can improve on their own. Sometimes it takes time for nerves to heal. In meantime, minimize pressure on nerve with seat cushions or avoiding sittig for extended periods Resources: http://www.oswego.edu www.pelvicpain.org
