Treating Neuropathy and Nerve Pain in the Feet
Let me start with I’m a diabetic. I developed neuropathy, which basically you lose all sensation in the feet, but it’s over a period of time. It was very painful. I would have sensations in my feet like I was standing on fire, walking on glass. Last October it got so bad that I couldn’t sleep at night. Then I met Bullard, because he’s just a great physician. I wouldn’t think twice, I’d recommend him to anybody. Very compassionate, very thorough, I can’t say enough about Bullard. He’s just a great physician and I don’t know if there’s anything he couldn’t do he could probably move mountains if he wanted to! Glen, probably one of the biggest questions.
People are asking you is what’d we do, what’s happened. Of course, you had a tremendous improvement in your pain and the tingling and the numbness. Easiest explanation is, to tell everybody, that this big nerve here, which is on the inside part of your left foot, was getting strangled. There was a noose around it. What we did is we went in and loosened the noose, and that allows that nerve to begin to function and work like it’s supposed to. Now, the sensation is coming back, it’s something that’s going to take time but I can feel more. My quality of life has greatly improved since I had the procedure done by Bullard. There’s no other physician.
That I would recommend. Glen, in the next couple weeks, what we’re going to do is make sure that the swelling is improving, hopefully begin to transition you out of your compression socks, because I know it’s kind of hot right now, and then look at making sure that your shoe gear and things like that are where they’re supposed to be, fitting you well, protecting your feet and stuff. Ok? Very good. Thank you, I appreciate it, have a good weekend! You do the same. Alright, see ya.
