Neuromas are a pain!

Recommended Posts

Hope it works..... It sounds like it should, Jon.... many diabetics suffer with neuropathy and that's what this is made for. It's to help stop the tingly, burning pain of neuropathy......I hope it works too.....

It's been shipped so I will give a try when it get's in and let you know.

I have nerve damage in my sound foot. Can't wait to hear if this stuff works. May go by Wally World tomorrow and pick some up. Thanks for the info.

Wouldn't it be great if it did!!!! If you notice on the box, it states "Don't bandage too tightly" so it should be safe under a liner...

It won't be under my liner. It'll be on my "good" foot!

I am very sorry to have to report that it did not work for me :sad: That doesn't mean that it won't work for someone else. But another

disappointment trying to find a cure.

It;s nothing more than capasium. Which can work over time as it is suppose block the substance P which is a pain distributor. Derived from chili peppers. Zostrix is another brand name -Walgreens, Rite-Aide and grocery stores. It takes up to three weeks for the desired affect. Do not get it on an open sore or your eyes wash your hand very well.

It's a given it won't work after just a few try's, it takes a few weeks and multiple applications per day to start working.

Hi all,

Thank you for the messages of support. I had the bandages off yesterday - and it looks amazing! This is the best my scar line / stump has looked in 8 years! The Plastics team at Morriston Hospital have done a fab job. My neuroma was cut off, and then the nerve ending was split, joined together and then buried in the popliteal fossa - back of the knee.

Hopefully the nerve will not start looking for the end, and will think its on a continuous loop, where it's been joined together!

Just got to get my knees sorted now and I'll be back to better fitness.

Hi Sue

I know you had your surgery 6 years ago, but I wondered whether this surgery helped you with your pain?
