Regarding the article on lidocaine, I showed Kevi’s neuro the article and he confered with other neuros. and they determined that they felt this was one isolated study done in Germany. As well, when you get a l/p, they use lidocaine to numb. the area. Kevin also has had several ingrown toe nails removed and they did use lidocaine and everything was ok. However, I do not know where I read or heard this but I do remember something about general anesthetic being more of an issue, because the immune system is temporarily turned off and then has to start again and gets confused. I think I am going to look into that in the event we ever need a surgery! Dawn Kevie’s mom
