Re: surgery for Morton's Neuroma

My first surgery was done approximately 1 1/2 years ago for a Morton's Neuroma. At that time the I had tried orthotics, "dancer's pads", special shoes, etc. The surgery went well but the recoup was time consuming. I cannot tolerate NSAIDS of any kind and I believe it was about 3 weeks before I was back in shoes and 6 until feeling fairly Normal. At that time the tumor was removed. I subsequently developed 2 more neuromas on different feet. We tried new orthotics, steroid injections and alcohol injections, all with some relief but the inevitable kept happening. Finally scheduled surgery again ( done 5 days ago). I had a bilateral decompression of the ligament that was pressing on the nerve. I can walk for short distances in sneakers, have minimal discomfort but rest most of the day. I expect to be out of work for approximately 2 weeks since I am an RN and may only return to work with no restrictions on my job function. I would be very interested in hearing results from others that have had this fairly new procedure performed and how they are doing.

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
