Re: morton's neuroma surgery

Hi Cathy,

I am wondering how you are feeling now... I had 2 Morton's Neuromas removed from my left foot on May 7th. That was 6 weeks ago. I didn't get back into sneakers until 4 weeks had passed and I still cannot take a full step on the foot and follow it through to the ball of the foot. So I definitely think that your pain at 19 days was far too early to tell. I couldn't even place my foot on the ground at 19 days - let alone bear weight on it. I can keep you posted on my progress. I hope you will post a follow-up to let us know how you are doing now. I, like you have one in the other foot also but I will hold off until next year to think about that one!

: I had surgery for a Morton's neuroma in my right foot about 19 days ago. The recovery was difficult at first, but I am finally back at work. The problem is that my foot is feeling much better, but if I put my full weight on it, I feel an electrical shock sensation in the ball of my foot. I'm worried that the surgery either didn't help, or created a new problem. My doctor doesn't want to hear about any problems; from his standpoint, the surgery went fine and was completely routine. Will this sensation go away, do I need more surgery, or am I just doomed to a life of pain? I still have a neuroma in my left foot, and I don't whether or not to proceed with the surgery, as long as this problem persists.
