Morton's Neuroma Post Surgery Complication

after suffering with the MN between 3/4 toes on the left foot for years ... and after having endured cortisone injection therapy of the years which initially were effective but ceased to be ... and after having endured a series of sclerosing agent injections (8 of them with no relief!) ... and or course after having had several pair of orthodics made over the years by different podiatrists (to no avail) ... i finally 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 in the process getting the names of some docs at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC and hope to get there soon for another opinion ... anyone here have any opinion or knowlege with respect to this situation? ... thanks
