Hello. I’m new to the group. I have read quite a few posts. I have had sensory peripheral neuropathy for 4 years. I have the numbness, pain, tingling in both feet and same in hands. I have had 9 surgeries on my feet and many injections. 3 surgeries on left foot and 6 on the right foot.
I take medication to try to help with the pain. Lyrica, cymbolta, tramadol and oxycodone, Generally the pain level can range from 3 to 8 depending on activity.
I had the triple nerve decompression surgery on both feet, as well as releasing the nerve surgery to cutting the nerve. In April I had the stim router surgery on my right foot. Where a lead is implanted near the nerve and eventually is supposed to give the message there is no pain, rather than pain to the brain. So far I have noticed a slight improvement.
Walking is unbearable after roughly a couple blocks distance. I’m really praying that the stim router gives more improvement with pain as time goes on.
Thanks for listening.
