I'm usually at the anxiety forum but just found this chronic pain forum. I suffer with excruciatingly painful lesions on the bottom of both feet and have had surgery for removal a few months back and they recurred (they are not plantar warts or anything viral, nor are they corns or calluses). I am scheduled for another surgery for excision next week. But, in the meantime, my doctor has given me Lioderm patch for use on these lesions to hopefully alleviate some of the pain so I can at least walk. Has anyone had any experience with this patch and, if so, how long did it take to start working? I put the patch on 1/2 hour ago and I thought it would be immediate relief but, as of yet, nothing but the excruciating pain.
