I have just had surgery for gallbladder removal and 2 weeks after I had terrible prickling sensations round the scar area. I was crippled with it. The consultant today told me that it was a neuroma, caused through scar tissue. has anyone else suffered with this. i would be so interested to find out. donna

  • :( Hi, Donna:I have a neuroma on my cervix and am told that it sometimes happens where there is scar tissue. As you probably know, it is a non-malignant bundle of nerves and is an extremely painful. In my case, the doctor can periodically inject lidocaine and steroids to reduce the inflammation (otherwise, I'm in intense pain and sex is an impossibility). I don't know whether they could do that in your case but you might ask.It's nasty, though. Nerve pain has got to be the worst pain there is. If it continues to be debilitating and they can't inject steroids it because of location, it is possible that Neurontin will help. It helps with other kinds of Neuropathy.Good luck!
