Re: surgery for Morton's Neuroma

Depending on the patient and many variables and the surgeon and variables, recovery may take several weeks to several months. Patients have diffrent perseptions of what recovery is. Is it when you can wear a soft shoe? Is it when you can run? Is it when you can walk barefoot without pain? It basically depends on the individual.

I alwyas warn a patient that a shot of cortisone can have 3 possible results: better, worse or no change. It can get worse if the neuroma is irritable ebnough that injecting in or around it aggravates it more than the cortisone is able to help.
