Re: Where to find a rsd doctor

The surgery is necessary. I have stress fractures from the way I walk and they way my bone structure is on my left foot, the only way to get them to go away is to shave off part of the heel bone as it is forcing me to walk and apply weight on the cuboid, & 5 metarsal. My fracture has been since last May and no matter how much I stayed off it it wouldn't heal. We have tried orthotics, crutches, wheel chairs and just plain keeping off it. I would give anything not to have surgery but I can't take the pain from the fractures. I am petrified of the surgery or should say the out come with the rsd. I remember the horrid burning from my first foot surgery and don't want that to happen again. I will have to see if I can find a pain management clinic, the last time I tried to get into one it was 6 weeks out and I don't have that much time. I can only hope there's an opening.
