Re: Lady Neon update
go girl- My recovery has pretty much been the same as yours. Slow but steady. I've also come to terms that my foot isnt going to be the same anymore. It seem so stiff and achy still.
I had only one complication that I'm still puzzled by. The toe that is on the right of my scar is limp from the first joint out. I can't really bend it and dont have much control over it. When I had the bandages off the first time that toe was very stiff and right away drifted to the right overlapping the next toe. I had no control over it at all. I showed it to my Dr. at my next visit and he said "no problem", I can fix that right here in my office". I should of run, not walked out of his office right then and there. He did what he called a ligament release in his office a few days later. He taped that toe to the other ones on each side kind of like a cast. I kept that on for 3 wks. Now when I walk I can feel it flopping.. I confronted him about it and asked him what happened. His response was "what do you expect? I had to cut the tendon". I might be wrong but I sure dont remember seeing anywhere that you have to cut the tendon to remove a neuroma. I've posted on this site and others trying to find out if this is how it should of turned out, or if he did something wrong, but I really didnt get much feedback. I've had to wait a while for a second opinoin because of my insurance. I have an appointment tomorrow, I hope this guy is unbiased.
Last year was kind of a yucky year healthwise for me. I had the neuroma surgery in April. A hysterectomy the end of June, the ligament release in July. Then on halloween I tripped up the basement stairs and ruptured my plantar fascia in the other foot. Sorry I've rambled on so, thanks for thinking of me.
