: I suffered permanent nerve damage to my saphenous nerve 3 months ago during knee surgery and was put on 60mg of nortriptyline for the forseeable future to control the nerve pain. I've gained TEN lbs so far and am considering trying a metabolim booster but don't know what's safe with the nortriptyline? Can anyone help? And just to forestall critics ...I eat only low fat and exercise 6-7 times a week (30 min) and haven't shed a pound...I'm getting desperate as I had maintained the same weight for years. Thanks for your help.

Hi, I know your topic was about the weight gain, but I have a couple of questions. The reason I am asking these questions is because I had back surgery in October of 98.
Since the surgery, I have numbness in my left leg from the knee down and I have been diagnosed with a neurogenic bladder. What this means is that I have to use a catheter 4 to 5 times daily to completly empty my bladder. I am a 35 year old female, mother of 2 small children and I had neither of those problmes prior to surgery.
My first question is has a doctor told you for certain that there was some kind of nerver damage done during the surgery and secondly, what does the operating surgeon say about the postsurgial problems that you have?
I hope that you read this letter and I also hope that I hear from you regarding this matter.
Sincerely, Mary ([email protected])
