How long does it take to recover from the removal of a tibial osteochondroma?


I have a tibial osteochondroma that might be approximately 1-2cm in size and it looks like I'll be getting it removed. I haven't met with the surgeon who will remove it yet, but I was wondering about what kind of recovery time I should expect. It's located more on the lateral superior part of the tibia (near the perineal nerve). I'm in my low 20s & am in healthy shape.
----------

i had an onsteochondroma removed from the side of my knee when i was 12 and i am now 20. My dr told me i would be on crutches a week, but i was really on them for 2 months. Did the doctor say why its there in your 20s. It didn't hurt alot after just maybe the 1st week. Usually osteochondroma stops growing when you stop growing. just take it easy, ice, take medication, and do therapy.  (+ info)

What is the root cause of itchy sensation due to neuropathy?


I have tingling, electric-like needle pin puncture and itchy sensations in my body. I thought this was an allergy but I doubt that it is related to neuropathy. Please help me to recognized the difference between allergy and neuropathy. I have history of allergy and also neuropathy. I am confused.
Can a neuropahtic pain have mild symptoms of itchy sensation similar to allergy?
----------

neuropathy will usually have a more pain-like tingling sensation, allergy is more itchy, no pain involved since there is no nerve involvement with an allergy.  (+ info)

What is the best treatment for the pain of Neuropathy?


I have had neuropathy for at least 8 years and the pain appears to be getting more difficult to control. The pain is primarily in my feet and lower legs. I take Lyrica twice a day but have all of the side effects associated with this product. I need help desperately but don't know where to find it. My neurologist has ordered a neuropathy profile on me and has tried several different kinds of medicines, all of which have been totally innefective. Any ideas?
----------

Meditation, self-hypnosis (mind control). This sounds wierd, but it works. It is an arduous process, but you can learn.

If you can find a quiet place to lay and close your eyes, do so. Clear your mind of all thoughts, and try to "see" in your minds eye the affected area. Think to yourself "there is no pain". Do this as often as necessary. It does work. It is much better than medicationg. Narcotic pain relievers are just too addictive. I am now trying to get off of them after a number of years of prescribed use. It is more painful to stop taking the pills than the original pain was. Now I am in misery if I do not take Suboxone - a medication used to assist in Opioid Addiction Therapy. It stops the withdrawl. But that has nothing to do with you, except to say PLEASE be careful if you are taking narcotic pain relievers.  (+ info)

What is the best way to help diabetic neuropathy, other than watching your blood sugar levels?


I have been a diabetic for 32 years, and I just have been told I have diabetic neuropathy in my legs. Does anyone know any good exercises, lotions etc that will help, besides some meds from the doctor?
----------

Diabetic neuropathy is not curable. Of course the primary med prescribed is neurontin. However, it is often thought that over the counter vitamin b-12 and vitamin e benefit the nerves. Wear good socks and shoes...check your feet often and keep them lotioned with any unscented lotion (just make sure alcohol is not in the first few ingredients listed as alcohol is a drying agent). It's also a great idea to see a podiatrist for any nail cutting. One small wound, cut or nik can cost you your foot as neuropathy consists of numbness and tingling of the foot and you could have a sore there but not feel it. As far as exercises that help...haven't heard much out there that benefits neuropathy..but exercise in general is a good idea to promote blood circulation as circulation is decreased in diabetics. Hope this has helped you somewhat. Best wishes.  (+ info)

What B vitamins are good to take to help relieve foot neuropathy?


Ive heard that B vitamins can help relieve foot neuropathy. Can someone tell me what kind to buy at the store? Thanks :)

The B vitamins will only help if that is related to the cause of the neuropathy. If the neuropathy is due to diabetes, do not expect to see any difference.  (+ info)

what to do to reduce the effects of neuropathy after chemo?


My mom just got done with her chemo treatments but her feet and legs feels like they have needles on them. and they're numb.
her doctor said she has neuropathy. what can she do to fee better i heard about this "rebuilder medical" device that supposed to help with the nerves. is that a good product?
----------

I am currently suffering from neuropathy as a side effect of my chemo treatments. My doctor prescribed an over-the-counter supplement called L-glutamine which is an amino acid found in our bodies. With stress and a lowered immune system some research has shown that we need additional doses of this amino acid to aid rapidly growing cells and maintain a positive nitrogen balance. All I know is that I've been taking it along with soaking my feet in warm water and massaging them and it seems to be helping. The main at the health food store said to increase activity level as much as possible, too. Hope this helps.  (+ info)

Will exercising the hands help with diabetic neuropathy if there is nerve damage in the neck?


Nerve damage was done a few years prior to the neuropathy. Taking pain pills for the pain just isn't getting it.
