I have surgery scheduled for Mortons Neuroma. I do have a good doctor/surgeon I am just worried he will cut on my foot and there wont be anything there. I have tried three cortisone shots to know avail. I have some of the syptoms but not all of the symptoms of Mortons Neuroma. I think I am just getting scared. I opted out of having the shots to kill the nerve because the pain involved and what if it didn't work. Any suggestions or ideas for me? Thanks!

I too have a neuroma,I opted for the alcohol injuections, and sorry to say they did not work for me. I am trying everything to avoid surgery, I have heard sometimes it grows back as a stup which can be more painful . I am doing accupuncture and so far I think it is helping . I am so tried of trying to find shoes that I can wear, my shoes now consist of clogs...oh, well anything to be pain free. Good luck in your choice or treatment.
Well I had my surgery and am on the way of recovery. I had a set back but now everything seems to be okay it will be a week tomorrow since I had it done. I am still having some pain. My surgeon tucked the nerve into my muscle to help keep a stump neuroma from forming. Him and his wife are so great. I am lucky to have a real good and caring doctor. I would do it again if I ever half to but to be honest I hope I don't. It wasn't as bad as everyone thought it would be. Yeah my toes are hurting some and my foot is swelling off and on but after everything is healed all up I think I will be okay.
