The doctor didn't mention this and I don't seem to be able to get him on the phone??
Any info anyone has about any area would be a help. My kids just think that Mom is really loosing it when Isay electric shock Thank You
I just had a sural nerve biopsy done on May 7th. Started having those electric shock pain the same as you the next day and I am still having them.
Doc said to ice and elevate for 3 days and it was up to me when I could go back to work. On the 4th day I went back to my office job at 8am, by noon I was in so much pain that my supervisor told me to go home. Took my sock off later in the evening and I had discoloration and internal bruising on both sides of my foot. Called doc and he said to elevate and ice it again. I am not going back to work for another week. I asked him about the risks prior to biopsy. He just mentioned infection and numbness, nothing about the others. I am not too happy about it or his attitude but I am going to talk to him this week.
