Default Another return doctor's visit.

Hi All,I was expecting to finally have the nerves to my knees cut/burnt last Friday but my doctor is so busy he cant do it until 7th next month. He explained the procedure & I can hardly wait.He said I should get at least 2 years pain free & then have to do it all over again as "the nerves grow back",which I had never heard of before. Apparently it must be carried out in an operating theatre in hospital & he can only operate on one knee at a time. Hope this sounds ok but the meds are making me sleepy. Best wishes, James jj777746

I'm no doctor but I've never heard of the being done before. Is it in place of or putting off total knee replacements? I've had both mine done after 17 years of bone on bone and although they are much better, no need for prescription drugs and ice packs take care of most discomfort it is far better then it was before. New equipment is no match to original equipment but better the the prescription route that generally does harm to the system in the attempt to help and don't even get me started on pain killers, which really don't work on me,at least not the synthetics. Oxy was a joke where Tylenol 3 w/codeine had the same level of relief without all the side effects.

Good luck with the procedures and I hope it brings you the relief you need. Pain is a pain...in the knees, well you know what I mean......Here's to success!

I sincerely hope that all goes well James. I'm not out to frighten you but my darling wife not that long ago had knee Arthroscopy, a seemingly simple procedure but she picked up a bug and ended up four weeks in hospital and almost died from septic arthritis. She then spent a week in a re-hab. hospital.
Myself, it's bone on bone but my GP advised me not to have knee replacements because of my age, he added anti-inflammatory capsules and whilst walking is still very difficult, I don't have constant pain anymore.

All the best to you, James.

This is the second time that I've heard about nerve cutting for pain.

When I was a kid in school, they still taught that nerves don't regenerate. An old friend had elbow nerves joined over thirty years ago, which gave him back about ninety percent of the usage of his hand.

I hope that you get the relief you need.

Everybody's path to pain relief is different and when it comes to nerve pain my first choice is always acupuncture, preferably performed by a Chinese practitioner. I have had pain issues with the arch of my foot and around my nose (shingles) and neither responded to the treatment tried by my primary doctors. The foot responded to 3 acupuncture treatments and the nose to around 5. It worked for me and was a better option than invasive surgery. JMHO. (if you try it check out the practitioner carefully, there are quacks in every profession)
