Nerve Surgery for Peripheral Neuropathy Pain
James symptoms were typical of peripheral neuropathy patients. He had a prickling tingling sensation in his feet with a severe burning numbness pain on the bottom of his feet. Walking was very painful. The pain would frequently wake him up at night resulting in chronic fatigue.
The pain was so intense that he dreaded getting out of bed. He was depressed by the thought of dealing with this pain the rest of his life
James went to see many other physicians in his quest to get relief. They were all quick to prescribe pain medication. But James didn’t want to give up the hope of finding a permanent, non-pharmaceutical solution.
He finally found Dr. Tollestrup who understood the peripheral neuropathy pain was due to nerve compression in the legs and feet. Unlike many people in the medical community, Dr. Tollestrup does not believe that peripheral neuropathy is a chronic, incurable condition.
After speaking with James to get a complete history and performing a physical examination, Dr. Tollestrup developed a plan to perform a series of surgical decompressions in James’ legs.
After each surgery, James felt immediate relief. He is back to doing the things he loves – playing basketball, working in his yard and enjoying an active lifestyle.
“What you did for me is a rejuvenation. I cannot thank you enough Dr. Tollestrup.”
