Post Mortons Neuroma sugery

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all. I had surgery last Saturday and nerve removal and have been resting as advised. The last two evenings the bottom of my foot has felt like it's on fire for around 20 mins. Is this normal? Have my follow up next Weds with Surgeon.

    It sounds like you are weight bearing and may have over done things a bit.

    Also remember that all of the nerve blocks have worn off and swelling has set in.

    If it were to burn and remain burning, I would telephone the surgeon.

    Think of how extended being on your legs for extended times can cause burning when you firstget off of them.

    Rest, elevation, are doubg as you should.

    When your foot burns, is it at it's greatest swelling for the day?

    This could in turn cause the bandages to be restrictive until the elevation and ice brings the swelling down.
