Fri, Feb 21 10:09am · Eliminating Foods for Neuropathy pain in Neuropathy

I can say that one of the biggest and worst factors is bad food. I found good food is something I can concentrate on to help myself feel better. That book is helpful and keto helps me have less pain. On days when I go off and crash on things I like such as donuts I pay for it badly. That night I can’t sleep, I burn, next day I can’t walk. Staying keto and also doing the protocol works which was recommended here also helps.

It is now 2020. I can actually hind that my arm doesn’t work but it actually feels like it not attacked and it causes me so much pain because I always feel like I’m carrying it around. It’s also handy on my neck and my whole right side hurts including my neck and I have sciatica the whole thing is a mess. I wake up with headaches almost everyday. I sit around it abound 11am try get dressed then I lay down because I got so tired.
Everything is a effort! I don’t complain and pretty much have isolated myself.
If and when people see me and it’s for a short period of time I hide it. The feelings I got back is pins needles sharp pains stabbing pains numbness freezing etc…

I had a Corpectomy in 2010. I wish I can give you good news but I can not. It is a very difficult surgical. They go they through the front to repair and replace the Vertebrae and also support that area. Mime was C4 through C6
I had it done at the spine center at UCSF and a one of the head surgeons did the surgery.
They tell you of all the things that can go wrong 3%.
Personally I wonder if it’s more than that.
Once I came out of surgery I could not move my right arm.
It was dead. The surgeon had cut a nerve. It felt like I was carrying 30 pounds of cement. The pain was unbearable. The sent me home with large amounts of pain killers and actually didn’t want to see me. I just wanted help but was in so much pain pretty much sat in a recliner for a year. Got new doctors that care! Have finally excepted my new normal but live in pain and now also have neuropathy that is growing like mold. So what I found out is that Corpectomy is not a surgery that is vastly done most times when I mention it people don’t even know what it is. It is very invasive. So if there is some other way around it I would look into it.
This is my story. Hope you find a good good for Corpectomy.

I’m not the same person anymore but I’m trying not to loose me. It’s very hard. So hang in there just know you have a new normal which keeps changing and it’s OK.
