Severe leg pain, has Neurofibroma in leg nerves. Had surgery, lumps still felt, pain persists. Alternative medication ?

Hello Sir, My mother has been suffering from severe leg pain and the doctor said she has Neurofibroma in her leg nerves. She underwent a surgery but the pain is severe and she can still feel the lumps . The recent ultra sound scanning report(post operation) says Schwannomas shows multiple inter muscular solid hypo echoic lesions noted at medial aspect of lower leg and thigh. And the Largest lesion is about 17x10mm size. Nature of Specimen: Excised? Neurofibroma Gross: Received a 2x1.5x0.5 cms soft tissue mass. Cut section capsulated, pearly white. Micro: Sections studied show the features of a Schwannoma. Her doctor says there is no use to do the surgery again as the lumps are so many and are tiny in size. He is suggesting to suffer with the pain and these lesions are not harmful. My mother started to use the Homeopathy medicine since 2 months from now. Initially there was bit relief with the pain and she can t feel the lumps also. But the pain doesn t go away completely. I am worried if these are really not tumors and should we continue using the Homeopathy patiently. Pls throw some light on this. Thank you so much

Homeopath 's  Response

Hello Satya,

Thank you for your query.

Schwannomas are the benign tumors arising from the nerve sheath. These are common among people with history of neurofibromatosis. These Schwannomas very very rarely become malignant, there is only 1% probability of it. The pain caused in the leg is due the pressure these tumors cause on the nerves. As the other surgeon suggested, surgery is not the cure for this condition as schwannomas recur again even after surgery. The best method is to relieve pain and the pressure symptoms rather than excising them.

Homeopathy is one of the best alternative medicine for the neurofibromatosis. The medicine helps in stopping the recurrence, and reducing pain. There are some cases which i treated had tumors reduce in size and then disappear. It might take little time but definitely will help in treating this condition. I suggest you continue using it as your mother found some improvement.

You can feel free to contact me anytime..I would be happy to help you

Thank you
