4 weeks post neuroma surgery
four weeks post neuroma surgery right foot
I have recently, 4&1/2 weeks ago had a Morton's neuroma removal of my right foot, usual place between 3rd and 4th toes. The procedure seems to have gone well but after a couple of days of wearing the dressing i seemed to be getting an excruciating pain right through my big toe and big toe knuckle. I asked the doc who said give it some healing time, which i did but got really worried about the pain after 10 days so e mailed the doc. he saw me at the 2 week point, removed the dressing and the stitches. He asked me about the pain explaining that the operation site was nowhere near my big toe but thought the dressing may have been tight enough to aggravate the nerve and to give it a few days to settle down with the dressing off. I am now almost 3 weeks after the removal of stitches and teh dressing and still experiencing excruciating pain down my big toe and on the knuckle. It looks almost like a bunion, the top of the foot is still very swollen and i do not have much movement of the toes. I can however manipulate them. I have rested, used crutches for almost 3/4 weeks soaked them in hot water, put ice on them with no luck. Am I just expecting too much too soon or could the surgery have brought on another problem, ie nerve damage, Bunions or even gout. Extremely worried that it will never be the same again, and I am
now gonna have excruciating pain in my foot every single day and not be able to return to my sports interests and studying for a future sports career.

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!
