ELS and former ETS patients

After performing ELS since about 2006 some patients who had ELS after having ETS years ago reported a temporary and a short increase in the status of their dry hands. For some unknown reason this particular phenomenon was reported by very few patients but this was as I said before on a temporary and short basis.

As mentioned elsewhere on this website the level of compensatory sweating basically stays the same as it was after the initial ETS procedure with some reported of cases (not all) of buttocks sweating that was improved with ELS. The reason for inconsistency is based on a different anatomical configuration of the lumbar sympathectic chain which can be different from one patient to another.
