re: nerve release update

0

hi dr. abrams,i got a second opinion on my superficial pereneal nerve issue with dr. thomas chang in san francisco today. his advice was a total removal of the nerve via surgery. honestly, that sounds good to me. im sick of this pain.i just wanted to ask you: how long is the recovery time for this procedure? and how much rehab is required? and if you have performed this operation, what kind of success rate have you noticed?
thank you,justin

Cheilectomy and scar tissue

0

I have posted numerous articles following my surgery – apologies but am anxious for any info anyone can provide.
I was not too happy with the results of my surgery in December – still had no movement and pain.
My Consultant referred me for physio.
I am currently having physio and ultra-sound once a week which is resulting in limited movement but am still experiencing pain.
The physio seems to think I may regain more movement but will most probably always have pain. Regaining movement seems to be pointless if I am to be in pain as the pain stops me from using the joint!!
My physio seems to think there may be a build up of scar tissue preventing movement.
Can anything be done about this?
Can a second cheilectomy be performed to remove the scar tissue?
Also I still have a lump over the joint (should this have been removed with the first cheilectomy?).
Would love to hear from anyone who has maybe had similar problems.
Many thanks.

Bicep tendonitis

0

My name is Cory and I am currently playing baseball for my high school and just got accepted to play ball for CSUN(California State University Nortridge). However I have a pain in my arm just above the bend in the elbow underneath that tendon by the bicep. I ice my arm twice a day for an hour each time and the pain goes away and my arm feels great. Yet, the next day at practice I will throw for like twenty minutes and the pain quickly comes back. I have tried taking advil, tylenol arthiritis, and am now currently attempting Bovista. But I need desperate help as I believe my entire baseball career depends upon it. If anyone out there knows anything that may be useful please help me out by replying or simply sending me an e-mail. I will try anything to rid the pain no matter how crazy the idea, as long as it allows me to hose the ball across the diamond.e-mail: baseballplaya8@earthlink.net

big bump on pinkie toe

0

I recently bought new shoes and sneakers and have been breaking them. i have very wide feet, and all the tightness around them has caused me to get a very large bump on my left pinkie toe. i am not sure if it is a corn or callus, but any suggestions?
do you think a simple thing like the dr. scholls, corn and callus remover will do the trick? i have a band aid on it now to provide some cushion, but now my old shoes are even giving me a lot of discomfort when walking.
