morton's neuroma

after suffering with this for years on 12/2 i had surgery to address this ... my understanding was the pain that i had would not be there after the surgery ... i would be in a surgical shoe for about 3 weeks time and fully recovered in about 6-8 weeks ... well as soon as the anesthesia wore off which was about 24 hours later ... i was unable to put any pressure on the foot ... the pain is and continues to be excruicating ... and i am unable to walk at all ... the surgical shoe was replaced with full rocking boot to keep the pressure off the ball of the foot ... for the most part it does but i still have to careful to keep the front of my foot raised but i can hobble about in this ... my doctor said whiles this is not usual he feels it is still just post-surgical trauma which he expect to resolve ... when questioned on how long he would wait before trying something new ... he said 2 months! ... i'm at my wits end ... there is no way i will be able to hobble like this for 1 month let alone 2 ... i'm getting the names of some docs at the Hospital for Special Surgery and hope to get there soon for another opinion ... what is yours? ... thank you

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
