Unexplained Pain

Having pain in the pelvic cavity after robotic removal of prostate one year ago. Was off of pain meds (Gabapentin) and fully continent after four months and was encouraged to start radiation. Also, was given a Lupron shot. My PSA was 1.77 after surgery and then 0 less than 1 in two tests before radiation. Was still told I needed radiation and after 6 doses I had severe pain and some leakage. Have been back on Gabapentin 2400 ml daily which gives some relief and allows me to do the Kegels needed to get back to being continent again. Have had many tests all negative. Nerve damage seems to be the only logical answer to the pain. Would like any info about my problem!!!
