Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more

Obturator nerve damage, how long to heal?

Variable: If the nerve is cut and repaired at the original surgery, the prognosis is usually good, but recovery can take about one year. This is because the nerve regenerates only about one inch per month. Alternatively, if the extent of damage is uncertain after the original surgery, physical therapy is prescribed for three months.

Is there a difference in the symptoms of neuropathy caused by a tumor & other neuropathy (not caused by tumors)? How do the symptoms in each differ?

Is there a difference in the symptoms of neuropathy caused by a tumor & other neuropathy (not caused by tumors)? How do the symptoms in each differ?

Not really...: Neuropathy is damage to a nerve with the effects usually felt at the point of damage downstream from the damaged area of the nerve. As the nerve does not necessarily differentiate what the damage is from, one from compression of a tumor may feel similar to one from a bulging a disc. However, every patient is different and every situation involving tumors and nerve damage will be different.

I'm diagnosed with neuropathy, but I don't exactly believe that's what it is. What are some other explanations of the symptoms of neuropathy?

OK to question diag.: Peripheral neuropathy is a not uncommon problem, and is most often associated with diabetes in usa. Numbness, tingling, pain, can be experienced over the toes or fingertips initially. Sensory loss and weakness may also be acquired from spinal cord and brain problems, but pattern very different. Sounds like a second opinion is in order here, and seems you need to know causation. Good luck.
