Postsurgical Neuropathic Pain
Postsurgical Neuropathic Pain is defined as nerve pain after surgery, which develops from inflammation of the nerves and causes the patient to experience numbness, weakness, and sharp, unsettling pain in the area where surgery occurred. Some studies have indicated that neuropathy may be caused by the immune system attacking the nerves and can be treated through standard peripheral neuropathy treatments. Postsurgical neuropathic pain is a result of a lesion or a type of dysfunction of the peripheral nervous system. Typically, 2-3% of surgical patients experience postsurgical neuropathic pain. Having a surgical procedure done always runs a risk of creating nerve damage, and patients with vitamin deficiency or have a history of nerve damage may have a higher chance of postsurgical neuropathic pain, and the treatment may take longer to take effect. In some cases of nerve damage, the symptoms will reduce and fade over time. In more severe cases, nerve damage may become chronic if not treated properly.
