Hi - I have been suffering from chronic abdominal pelvic pain post-surgical now since late 2007. I am classified as opioid resistant. I am at a persistant pain level of at least 5 or more on a daily basis. I have been to physical therapy - unsuccessful due to the pain threshold. Have tried lidocaine patches and most recently trigger point injections of lidocaine - which is a temporary relief of about 3 days.

My physician is now proposing the treatment of alcohol injection(s) into the abdominal/pelvic region area. I have not been able to find any information on this treatment.

Please advise. Thanks!
