Post Traumatic Neuropathy

Well it is now 6 months since the operation to my hand ,and I am still not back at work,and right hand still is not functional.Having been for a second opinion yesterday,and was told by the consultant that what I have developed was Post Traumatic Neuropathy Stress,which he said happens very rarely,in fact so rarely,he does not warn patients of it as a risk factor.Has anyone here been through this too?

Post Traumatic Neuropathy

It's a rare effect of surgery and also radiotherapy. You might have a look at
http://www.coventrypainclinic.org.uk/ner...cneuropathy.htm

and then take it from there.

What you describe might also possibly be somewhat related with
"Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSD) - also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) - is a chronic neurological syndrome characterized by:

- severe burning pain
- pathological changes in bone and skin
- excessive sweating
- tissue swelling
- extreme sensitivity to touch"
(from http://www.rsds.org/)
