In the 1980's I had Endometriosis - then a complete Hysterecotmy - since my right top front thigh became numb

A neurologist told me it is a peripheral Neuropathy after the EEG testnthat could be cause from a nerve cut or nicked during the hysterectmony surgery
- for yrs it was just numb and now it has sharp pain in it- I have scar tissue
Is there any way to make this better?? WITHOUT MORE SUGERY

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. What did your doctor tell you about your peripheral neuropathy? Did she or he recommend any course of treatment? Were you prescribed any medicine, like muscle relaxants? Did the doctor recommend physical therapy? You may want to discuss options more thoroughly with your doctor to find one that's right for you.
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition where nerves can become damaged as a result of another condition. Some of those conditions are described here: Conditions Resulting in Numbness, Tingling, Pain and Loss of Balance. There are several different non-surgical therapies that may help relieve peripheral neuropathy, they are described here: Peripheral Neuropathy Treatments. Alternative treatments like accupuncture also may help relieve pain and numbness, although alternative treatments are not FDA approved.
Good luck, and let us know what you find out.
