Hi there. At the outset, you will need to be more specific. Nobody has surgery for 'nerve
damage' unless there is some trauma preceding or there is some underlying 'neurological cause' for the damage. What nerve was involved & was it an isolated occurence? Were there any skin patches with loss of sensation or any paraesthesia
or motor or sensory loss? What was the surgery done?I can only presume he put you on medrol
to decrease the inflammation. If am not mistaken, medrol is a corticosteroid & comes in oral tabs & injectables.It need not mean you have an autoimmune disease
. There are certain blood tests that can be done to confirm or allay your fears. Just because your mother has Lupus
, does not mean you will have it too. I suggest you can go back to your doctor & ASK him why he put you on medrol & also request him to do the necessary basic tests in the 'lupus package' to Rule out any lupus & put your mind at rest. Cheers & Wish you good luck!
