Re: Nerve damage

i just had 'nerve release' surgery on the outside of my left ankle. i have been dealing with this problem for a little under a year. i can sympathise, because nerve injuries are unpredictable and very painful.

there is medicine called 'neurontin' that my doctor gave me before and after the surgery. it helps with the pain. maybe look it up and mention it to your doc.

but all i can say is that they take a very very long time to heal.

and if you are getting concerned with your doc, you can always get a second opinion.

good luck!

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
