  • Cryosurgery for Neuropathy

    Has anyone heard of or had cryosurgery for neuropathy? Its an outpatient procedure (also called cryoanalgesia) where the nerves in the foot are frozen quickly. My husband Perry is still having a hard time with neuropathy in his feet after his chemo and I would love to get some feedback on this procedure if anyone out there has tried it. He has a follow up appointment with his Oncologist on 7/23 so we're going to ask him, but would love to hear from everyone else. Thanks!
