Nerve Block

Injection of local anesthetic to the root of a nerve to numb the area along the path of that nerve

Question: How long will my leg be numb after having a nerve block? I have no control over it? The nerve block was done about 4 hours ago to block the pain in my right testicle. If I bend my right leg while walking I collapse, it has no strength or control. I tried to call the doc but they closed already. Any Ideas?

Answer: 4 hrs
