I was diagnosed with a Mortons neuroma between toe 2 & 3 in my left foot in march 2014. I was to have surgery on December 2014 to remove it after having insoles from podiatry and not making any difference. When my consultant came to speak to me prior to my surgery he said he wasn't going to remove the neuroma as it was smaller (6.5mm) than HR likes them to be (9-10mm)!! But he would straighten my big toe as it was fairly squint and squashing my other toes and he felt that this would give the other toes a bit more space and I would get less pain from the neuroma. Anyway long story short I've had the toe straightened but still in a lot of pain on ball of my foot and in top at base of both toes 2&3 and consultant today wanted 2 give me more surgery to now remove the neuroma!! Due to having had lots of time off work for the earlier surgery I'm unable to take any more time off just yet so om getting an ultrasound guided cortisone injection - had anybody had this and did it give you any relief? I'm hoping that this will ease my pain and give me a bit longer before I need further surgery. Sorry for the long post and would be grateful for any advise. Thanks
