Hi I truly feel for you. I suffer from HyperHydrosis since I was a teen, now 41. I got the Thoracic Sympothetemy, check spelling, in about 1989. My hands are permanently dry but I suffer from bad compensatory sweating. I now sweat from my chest and back when I never did before. My feet sweat much more now too. At the time Dr. Martin Cooper did the surgery I had to get in down the spine so I have a scar there, not too bad really. Some people say the Sage tea works, it never did for me. I tried The Drionic machine, didn't work either. Robinul Forte 2mg works but makes your eyes very dry. If you get the surgery get the kind where the procedure is reversible the put some kind of band on the nerve. Some days I can't wear colored shirts too many sweat stains. Oh well without dry hands I probably would have never had any female relationships so its a trade off. It's genetic for me I got it from my Dad. I wish the best of luck.
