Neuroma surgery
May 3, 2015
A little history of myself. I've been dealing with a neuroma in my right foot for about 10 years. It started in my mid 20s. I've done alcohol shots two times well two rounds of like 6 shots. The first time 10 years ago it worked for awhile then the pain came back. I've done countless cortisone shots, pt, laser therapy, cryosurgery, and lastly surgery on April 7 th. they said the neuroma was very big . It's between my 3/4 th toe. My question is that I'm almost a month from surgery and I'm still in extreme pain, is this still normal?. My 4 th toe is so numb it hurts. Walking is unbearable. Now I've done a lot of research on this and I knew the consequences of the surgery but I pretty much exhausted everything else. So I was like what else to do I have to lose. I went to a very reputable ortho. Foot surgeon who did major foot surgery on my husband two years ago and every dr. recommend him. My husband recorvered very nicely from pttd surgery. I understand everybody heals differently but I'm getting very discouraged now. I've been able to walk on it from day one but I've been elevating and icing everyday. I do have a 5 year old so I've had to take her to and from school but I just started driving in town this week. I just want to get my life back to normal. So for people who have neuroma surgery how long did it take for you to stop having pain, and to get back into somewhat a normal life? Did anybody have pt? My foot doesn't bend except my big toe, it feels so stiff. I have called my dr. A couple of times and he said this is all normal, just give it time. But I'm starting to run out of time. I haven't worked these couple of weeks and I need to get start back into work and with the summer approaching I thought I would be better.
