morton's neuroma surgery

Hello, I'm posting this message on behalf of my sister in law who had morton's neuroma surgery on 4/15/2004 on both feet. Today is 9/14/2004 and she is still unable to walk. She has been homebound since the surgery and is still in alot of pain. She is currently under the care of 4 doctors -- her orthopedic surgeon, medical doctor, pain specialist and neurologist. Two of the four doctors are not sure she has RSD (the pain specialist & medical doctor) since she does not exhibit all the symptoms. She is on neurotin and pain patch--neither helping to alleviate pain at all. On top of all the pain is her inability to eat normally. She is unable to eat any processed foods--only fresh fruits and veggies--as the preservatives cause greater pain in the surgical area.

Any advice you can give would help. We have no idea what went wrong or if she will ever be able to walk again. Many thanks. Ceil

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
