I have an aggravating, annoying pulling-like nerve sensation and numbness 24/7 of my 2nd toe after having a redo bunion surgery by another podiatrist and with the 2nd surgery had a 2nd toe osteotomy to shorten it and a neuroma cut out for the 2nd toe being affected( a top approach was done) and had 2nd hammer toe corrected; a SMART clip was used for 2nd toe; with flexion or extention this weird nerve sensation increases but is still present at rest; feels like a bunch of nerves are trapped and need released to decrease a tightness feeling of the 2nd toe;feels like superglue is wrapped around my 2nd toe or a tight string wrapped around it; looks and feels like the web between the 2nd and 3rd toe is closer together since the surgery ;it almost seems like if the web was sliced I could get a little relief; the ball of foot is a nervy wierd sensation when massaged and when massaged with lotion the ball of foot feels like there are several tiny ropes lined up one right under the other; I wonder if nerves got trapped in scar tissue or what; in addition to these abnormal nerve sensations my 2nd toe for 2 months after surgery was so much bigger diameter wise until I went to a 2nd opinion podiatrist ; he did cortizone injections, a script for a 5 compound drug in a cream to rub into toe, celebrex, conforming tape to wrap the 2nd toe; I feel the tape shrunk the toe a lot; the cream is a 20% temporary fix, celebrex stopped after 12 days; tore my stomach up; I
cannot live with this constant annoying nerve sensation, pulling tightness sensation of my toe; will another surgery be able to help me and what surgery would this be and is there a possibility I would be worse off with another surgery to correct my problem? My surgery was July 8th, 2011.

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
