    I was doing some reading the other day and came across some stuff regarding peripheral neuropathy and also leg and foot ulcers. Apparently there are operations done for foot problems that are similar to carpal tunnel operations for the hand. One is called Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome which is an operation near the ankle, and the other is called Dellon Triple Nerve De-compression Proceedure where they operate on one area below the knee, one on the lower leg and one behind the ankle. Has anyone heard of this or had it done? I have had diabetes for 42 years an have peripheral neuropathy but have never been spoken to in regards to this. It supposedly completely cure the problems associated with neuropathy. I am in Australia and this seems to be from America.
    I also came across using sugar mixed with iodine to cure leg and foot ulcers. Anyone heard of or tried this? I am always looking for a simple answer - especially if it doesn't involve medication!
