Nerve Damage (neuropathy) as a Side Effect of Surgery

How it happens. What can be done for relief?

Often, during the course of surgery it is possible that nerves may become damaged.  This is called neuropathy.

Blurred doctors performing surgery

Causes of nerve damage during surgery include the scalpel, a bruise that occurs on the nerve, inflammation of the tissue around the nerve, forces caused by patient positioning during surgery, or prolonged contact with rigid surgical equipment. Prolonged stretching or compression of tissue surrounding a nerve hampers circulation and can deprive the nerve of nourishment. These effects can lead to nerve damage, which may be temporary or permanent.

There have been studies done in 2010 by Mayo Clinic that found that in some cases nerve inflammation may be the cause following surgical procedures saying that it was not the surgeon’s fault but the immune system attacking the nerves.

The Mayo Clinic study found that nerve inflammation may cause pain, numbness and weakness following surgical procedures.

Although anyone undergoing surgery runs a risk of nerve damage, patients who have diabetes mellitus, cancer, a vitamin deficiency, or a history of previous nerve injury have an increased risk. Other risk factors include smoking, alcoholism, obesity, a preexisting limitation in joint movement, personal or occupational habits that cause repeated bending of an extremity, or a lengthy surgical procedure.

This damage can be the result of all types of surgery.

In some cases the nerve damage will go away over time, as the injured portion of the nerve heals or the inflammation goes away. In other cases, the symptoms are permanent unless the nerves can be made healthy. 

Symptoms of surgical nerve damage:

Symptoms include tingling or numbness in one area of the body. It may resemble “pins and needles: It can result in pain, which is generally a severe burning pain.

These symptoms may occur at the actual surgical site, or in distant parts of the body as the damaged nerve may supply these parts.

These symptoms may become worse due to sudden movements or unusual body positioning, such as those that occur during sleep.

The pain that comes from post-surgical nerve damage will be treated by medical doctors with pain medication, even narcotics.

Treatment for the Nerve Damage of Surgery

You’ve probably read or heard aboaut lots of different remedies for the symptoms of nerve damage (neuropathy). You just need to search on the internet under neuropathy to get pages and pages of remedies. The search will reveal many different veiwpoints about what will help you get relief. I’ve talked to many people who have tried remedy after remedy.

There are many herbs that attempt to cover up the symptoms and there are many drugs that try to cover up the symptoms.

There are many different anti-oxidants and formulas that will bring some relief. I know the things that will help – essential fatty acids, vitamin c, combination of acetyl l-carnitine and alpha lipoic acid – etc. etc.

You can go to Neuropathy Treatments to get the pros and cons of many of these.

The real cause of all these problems however is the unhealthy nerves. Healthy nerves aren’t painful, they aren’t numb, don’t burn…. and aren’t all the other symptoms that you feel with nerve damage.

None of the various neuropathy treatments will restore nerve health. You can cover up the symptoms and you can increase circulation and you can make a person feel less pain, etc., but if you build healthy nerves, there will not be any symptoms (healthy nerves don’t hurt, tingle, burn, are not numb, etc.) and the relief will be lasting.  

Restoring Health to the Nerves:  

We always recommend you take the approach of building health and nerves are no different.

Nerves need to be healthy to function properly.

Pros: Healthy sensory nerves mean that they are not painful. Healthy nerves mean that they communicate and don’t send wrong signals such as burning, hot and cold, tingling when there is no reason for it. Healthy motor nerves mean that they relay messages from the brain to the muscle so that they move correctly without weakness.

The body needs specific nutrients (vitamins) to be able to build healthy nerves. Getting bio-available special forms of B1 and B12 along with the other B Vitamins that activate them will promote and support healthy nerves. 

Cons: It may not give immediate relief as the vitamins are working at a cellular level, it may take longer, but it does address the actual problem and builds healthy nerves.

Natural Treatment & Building Healthy Nerves in your mouth

The body needs the correct tools to restore health and build healthy nerves. These tools are specific nutrition (vitamins). Healthy nerves aren’t painful, they aren’t numb, don’t burn…. and don’t have any of the other symptoms of nerve damage.

What are they?  Read on.

It has been known for some time that B1 (thiamine) is very effective. It is needed by the body to create healthy nerves.

Unfortunately, the oral intake of vitamin B1 does not greatly increase the levels of B1 in the blood stream.

The reason for this is that Thiamine, like all of the B vitamins, is water-soluble. Thiamine cannot be stored in the body and flushes out within 4 to 5 hours.

Additionally, it has been found the symptoms are made worse by insufficient amounts of B12 in the body. Vitamin B12 supports the sheathing that protects nerve cells and has shown in studies to promote the growth of healthy nerve cells.

In the past, it has been difficult to remedy the B12 deficiency. The reason for this is that while vitamin B12 is readily stored by the body, it is not readily absorbed by the body. For this reason much larger amounts have been used in supplementation, but even large oral dosages have not been an adequate solution.

Keep reading. There is a solution.

A Remedy for this Problem: 

You might have heard of the new type of vitamin B1 being produced, called Benfotiamine. It is a fat-soluble version of vitamin B1. What does this mean?  It means this new form of vitamin B1 can be taken orally in large dosages and it will not flush out of the body the way ordinary Thiamine (vitamin B1) does. This is due to the fact that this type of B1 will be delivered into the blood stream where it can travel to the cells and be used.

Also available is Methylcobalamine (called Methyl B12). This is the form of vitamin B12 that can be directly utilized by the body. When regular B12 is taken, the body has to convert it into the Methyl B12 in the gut. Methyl B12 already comes in this useable form.  

Where can I find these supplements?

RECOMMENDED:  (This is where we have researched products and found one that we found will work for you) 

We have been recommending this formula for 13 years. We have looked at other products that had similar ingredients, but haven’t found one that has all the necessary ingredients.

This company has had this formula since 2004 and has over 15 years worth of success. The vitamins talked about above to build healthy nerves are available together.  The name of the product is RHP® Nerve Support Formula    

It contains both the Benfotiamine and Methyl B12. The result is that the blood stream levels of vitamin B1 and vitamin B12 can be greatly increased, providing the nutritional support needed by the body to rapidly and far more effectively to decrease or eliminate the symptoms of unhealthy nerves. 

Both Benfotiamine and Methyl B12 have been shown to be non-toxic and without any side effects even in very high dosages.

Additionally, the formula has three other B vitamins and vitamin D3 in the exact proportion that work together to produce the best results. The formula has been found to be exactly what the body needs.

Why the other B vitamins in the formula?

B1 (thiamine) is dependent on the other B-complex vitamins. Absorption of B1 into the body requires adequate supplies of vitamin B6, B12 and B9 (folic acid). A deficiency in Vitamins B12 can increase loss of B1in the urine, and vitamin B6 also appears to help regulate distribution of thiamine throughout the body. B9 (folic acid) is also necessary to activate the absorption of the B12. The body utilizes vitamin B2 to keep tissue healthy and to help accelerate healing of injuries. B2 protects the nervous system.

In addition the formula has Vitamin D. One of the functions of Vitamin D is the regulation of nervous system development and function.
