Hi, I have been dealing with foot pain for several years. It started with Morton's neuroma on the ball of both feet. This was treated with Alcohol injections and orthotics. However in the last two years my feet have slowly been going numb. I have about 25% feeling in both feet not to mention constant burning and tingling which worsens at night. I don't want my feet touched even by the sheets in bed! I went to a new Dr. who sent me to a neurologist. He conducted the nerve study and seemed to think I had Tarsal Tunnel. I met with my podiatrist again and he suggested Cortisone shots in both ankles. He said if the shots temporarily alleviated the tingling then I probably had TTS. The first shot lasted about 2.5 months. I went in again to discuss my options and he suggested the release surgery. I am scheduled for surgery on my left Feb. 21. He will not do both feet at once. So my question is this.... I have read nothing but bad results to this surgery. I want to know if there is anyone out there with positive results. It seems only the negative results get posted! Please let me know. I am a First grade teacher and getting very nervous about this surgery and the recovery!!
