More tons Neuroma

Posted , 6 users are following.

i had two neuromas removed 3 months ago. My foot is still very uncomfortable, I feel as if I have a lump underneath the ball of my foot and I still get the pain in the third and forth toe as before. My scar is very raised on the top of my foot, maybe because I got an infection in my wound after the operation but that is also quite sensitive. Anyone else had the same outcome and if so did your foot eventually feel better? I'm beginning to wish I hadn't had it done.

Static pain up leg and buttock (left side) I am so frustrated how it's affecting me... Slowed me gown big time.. I do try to keep on go but the pain gets to a height I have to try rest it... But when am sitting the aches up leg.. Buttocks.. Have tried a lot painkillers which didn't touch the pain just made me like a spaced-out zombie!! So I am very low,depressed as I was always a happy, active person but constant pain is making me miserable, snappy.. I try my best to keep positive but the pain just " overtakes" .. So Les have you tried any the painkillers?

    I have had 2 nueromas removed and didn't have any recovery problems. I'm beginning to think foot problems are inevitable to all and we have to decide the best path to being painless. I also encourage all to trace ancestry that might be a key to understaning why "I continue to have foot problems,and my husband never does"!  I know my mother had foot problems.  I should have maybe looked closer to her feet and made decisions early in life to do anything to avoid future problems.

    Hi Lesliy - As I understand it removal of a Morton's neuoma results in having no feeling between the 3rd & 4th toes, and that's just what I have/don't have.  But I also have the feelings of a lump under my foot sort of behind the 2nd and 3rd toes.  When my foot specialist, using an ultra sound to guide him, injected a small amount of anasthetic in the bursa the 'lump' vanished in seconds and I was able to walk up and down the surgery like a normal human being.  However once the anasthetic wore off, the 'lump' came back.  Whether it is a real lump or it feels like a lump because of the pain, I don't know.  Anyway I find the best relief comes from having 2 insoles in my shoe with a 2 or 3 cm hole cut in the lower one where the 'lump' is.

    Hi Lesley,

    i had morton's neuroma surgery about two years ago. My foot actually hurts more now than it did before my surgery. Wish I had better news...  My scar was also raised and discolored, and has smoothed out and gotten flesh color. I wish you luck.
