Will I Have More Hand Sweating after The lumbar Sympathectomy For my Sweaty Feet?

The answer is no. There are some instances in which patients describe a temporary increase in their hand sweating after a lumbar sympathectomy. These patients received the thoracic sympathectomy for their excessive hand sweating previously.

We do not know what causes this temporary increase in sweat. The length of time where more excessive hand sweating appears is a matter of days not weeks. The body’s nervous system needs time to adjust to the new signals that come after doing a lumbar sympathectomy.
