  • Well just got a shot in the ankle boy was that fun.If that doesn't work then he may do another on and if that doesn't work he will cut the tendon to release the pressure on the nerve,I just hope it is not to late as I have permanent nerve damage of the S-1 nerve.He said that is a long recovery if they have to cut the tendon.
  • Hi Jim did the trial for the spinal cord stimulator and was not a good candidate but good thinking.Thanks.
  • The treatment you received for your ankle/foot sounds to me that it is for tarsal tunnel syndrome and not related to your back. Did your physician suggest this was the reason for your mononeuritis?

    Best wishes,

  • you are correct it is tarsal tunnel and the mononeuritis from what I have found is a cause of more then one nerve being damaged and something called the axon being damaged and can lead to me losing the use of my leg and other organ damage.I can remeber the site I found this info but it was interesting reading about what can happen and causes.
  • Well looks like I will need surgery to fix this foot issue and they are saying I have more nerve damage and its not looking good.
