I had my first op for removal of MN 10 years ago in my right foot after suffering years of pain and no treatment working. It was a success. In May 2015 I had my second op to remove 2 MNs from my left foot and it has been a success. One nerve was 4.5cm long and the foot specialist said it was a monster. I was told I would have swelling for 6 months and I was still limping after 4 months but now I am back in sensible shoes (crocs are great too and were a life saver for months). So it really is something that takes months to heal, not weeks. I was off work for 6 weeks and rested foot as much as possible. My toes are numb but no pain. I'd rather have numb. So many horror stories on here that I just wanted to give some positive news to those who are anxious. Of course you go on these sites as a last resort and that is why there are bad experiences. If you have success there is no need to scour the forums for advice.
i really don't know about the professional advice from JP6669. He never offers solutions instead of surgery. I have never found his book. Has he ever suffered from MN? If you haven't personally suffered from something it is hard to put yourself in their shoes! Sorry for the pun!
Good luck to everyone, who like me has tried everything else for years and found no solution except for surgery. Have patience, rest the foot as much as possible and wear comfortable shoes. 8 months on I am glad I had the op!
