Sun, Aug 11 9:43pm · Sensory Peripheral Neuropathy in Neuropathy

Hello All. I do have the Stim Router device inserted next to a nerve in my right foot. It was inserted April 3rd of this year. The pain on the top of my right foot was roughly about an 8 with medication. I still have pain but so far it has helped. My pain level in my right foot has decreased to roughly a 6. But that's still with medication. The hope is with time my pain will continue to go down as the nerve gets retrained. The plan is to do the left foot as well.

Hi Lisa. Nice to meet you. The Triple nerve decompression surgeries gave me about 30% relief. I did the surgeries August 2016 left foot and right foot December 2016. I was so excited to find out there was a surgery. I started having numbness and pain in my left leg and foot in 2015. Then starting in right foot. I thought it was my back so I went to the back institute. Because I have a thinning disc. Anyway injections and 14 weeks of physical therapy I gave up in February 2016. But a coworker recommended a Dr. He did the EMG test and that's when I found out I have Sensory Neuropathy. But the Dr said they don't handle it there. And cried and googled. But that's when I read about the triple nerve decompression surgery. I am thankful for that surgery. But I didn't stop there…

Hello. Great to meet you John. I love the Bioness post. I love the Stim Router so far. It has only been a couple months but I have noticed a decrease in pain when I wear it. You have to take it off every 4 hours to charge. My Dr wants to give it about 6 to 8 months before doing the left foot to see how the results are for the right foot. Sorry I misspelled Sensory. It was 1am lol.

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.
