why would you want to do this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Personal reasons, can I please have my answer?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

It would involve a surgical procedure.

you would need to paralyze or damage nerves.

There would be no doctor that would be willing to do this.

I'm sorry.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is nothing I can do at home to cause permanent damage?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

No, not really. Anything you did that is extreme enough to cause permanent damage would likely be lethal

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have read to drink vinegar or lemons.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

That will just cause temporary irritation.

not permanent damage
