I have been told the nerve was probably damaged during my surgery. What test or procedure was performed on you to show it was nerve damage? I recently had a CT of the abdomen and pelvic area but my GI Doctor said it wouldn’t show the nerve. Please advise. Thank you

I think an EMG shows damage.. it is where they have this needle (tiny) inserted by the nerve, and it shows on a screen. I am sure that some of the other people who have previously responded would have more info than I do….

Thank you for that info.

Thank you!
