      Is acupuncture appropriate for treatment of
      surgical incisional pain? The patient had a total
      hysterectomy 5 days ago, still having incisional pain in lower
      abdominal region. She does not want to be on pain
      medication. Looking for comments on location of needle
      placement and possible use of electro stimulation. Thanks.

        Hi Bert,<br>Yes acupuncture has been used for
        animals for years. I think
        <a href=http://homepage.tinet.ie/~progers/study.htm target=new>http://homepage.tinet.ie/~progers/study.htm</a> may have some info about it. There are also a
        number of books on the subject check also
        www.redwingbooks.com or www.bluepoppy.com (hope those are right).
        Acupuncture is used in many operations in China. There are a
        few tests they run prior to cutting. About 50% can
        use it with success. It is also very good for post
        operative pain, such as tooth extraction. You may also find
        some other links at
        <a href=http://acupuncture.8k.com/acupvil.htm target=new>http://acupuncture.8k.com/acupvil.htm</a><br>this one is one of the best collections of links
        around.<br>Hope this helps,<br>Bob
