Cut your nerve endings out?

    Recommended Posts

    Would it be possible to in effect 'cop' your nerves endings the virus travels up to?

    Obviously this would be a scientific procedure, but would that be possible...

    So like putting a road block for when the virus leaves your spinal cord and starts to travel up your nerve?

    This could cause paralysis.  It's not just those nerve endings that HSV infected that are compromised, the virus can travel through other nerve endings as well.  Essentially, the virus resides in the DRG for genital HSV.  That is a cluster of nerves which have a wide reach in the body.

    You would have to cut out the nerve roots out rather than the endings.

    So is this a scientific possibility? (you think?)

    of course it's possible.  but if you sever the sacral nerves then you're severely disrupting (absolutely fucking) the functionality of your colon, anus, genitalia...  You'd most likely be incontinent and crap all over the place because you'd have no control down there.   If you thought having herpes was bad then cutting out nerves would be a nobel prize in shittiness (is that even a word?).

    I'll let someone else be the test pilot.
