I will let you guys know how it goes. Wish me luck…. It all sounds really great. I hope you guys get this. I have tried typing this about 4 times and something keeps happening and throwing me out.

Hi @mikween,
Here’s the abstract of a research paper I found about “Surgical treatment of peripheral neuropathy: outcomes from 100 consecutive decompressions.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16166462 Published in 2005.

According to the Mayo Clinic information (http://mayocl.in/2qBbcFY) “If you have neuropathies caused by pressure on nerves, such as pressure from tumors, you might need surgery to reduce the pressure.”

We will be very interested in hearing what you find out on May 16th. Hopefully this information helps to prepare questions you might ask at the appointment. Please keep us posted.

Also @mikween, can you please send me a message using this form to tell me about the tech issues you were having with the website: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/contact-a-community-moderator/

Additionally, we discourage the use of ALL CAPS for writing messages as it is considered shouting in online communication. Maybe you’re excited and feel like shouting 🙂 Still I recommend turning the all caps off. See the community guidelines here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/community-guidelines/

Talk soon.

Hi @colleenyoung, sorry about the all caps. I just wanted to know are you the only one that revived my message about the link I sent? And if so how do I get everybody to get it?

Hi @mikween,
When you reply to an email that you receive from Mayo Clinic Connect’s website, your message is posted for everyone to see. Click VIEW & REPLY in this email and you will see the entire discussion thread about neuropathy. Scroll up and you’ll see your post with the link to the website about surgery options.

I hope this clarifies. I have posted this publicly because I believe other members may have the same question. Thank you for raising it.

Notice this review from 2013 that was referenced in this article. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24124946 It references the need for more research into the seeing if diabetic neuropathy may be a compression-caused neuropathy since compression relieving surgery seems to help.

So now does everyone see this.  I just hit reply from my e-mail direclty.

I see it.


Yes, @mikween. Your reply can be seen by all.
