Nerve Problems

If you experience pain in a place where there are no pins, this may be the first sign of a nerve problem. This is called “referred pain.” The next sign is an increased or decreased feeling in the area of your foot or hand, depending on where your external fixator is located. You could experience these symptoms during the initial correction phase of your treatment with the TAYLOR SPATIAL FRAME fixator.

Report these symptoms to your surgeon as soon as possible. They may be indications of nerve irritation.

Please discuss nutrition, medication and treatment options with your doctor to make sure you are getting the proper care for your particular situation.  The information on this site does not replace your doctor's specific instructions.
