femoral nerve damage pain

I have femoral nerve damage due to a pelvic osteotomy in 1984. The femoral artery was ruptured/repaired causing several days of pressure to nerve. Hip replaced in 1989 and a socket revision in 2006. In '08 muscles in thigh began shrinking causing shortened leg of 1.5 in. Severe pain has resulted in all femoral peripheral nerves. Last resort seems to be femoral nerve block so I can go back to strengthening.
Has anyone had one of these procedures. I am trying to find out any downside to having this done. What can I expect. What are the benefits. How long and how much pain will it relieve.
