Hi, I had 2 benign schwannomas removed from my left thigh about 2 weeks ago. I am experiencing numbness around the incision which the doctor said was likely, but I am also experiencing server neuropathy in my knee. The air touching it makes it feel like it's on fire and there is terrible pain. I've been having a hard time walking and cannot really bend the knee such as when getting dressed. I have been prescribed gabapentin but so far it is not helping. I have been on it for about 5 days. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? The surgeon does not seem to concerned and said wait about 4 weeks. But I am in agony and 2 weeks in there is NO improvement. Any info anyone could provide will be greatly appreciated.
