I had PTTD surgery 2 years ago on my right foot and I'm still in pain. Every day I wake with a swollen foot. After I squeeze my foot into a shoe the swelling will either go down or move up to my ankle. If I walk too long, I get terrible pain in my heel that causes me to limp. I get pain on my outside ankle and sometimes a burning on the inside ankle. I've spent hundreds of dollars on shoes that fit when I try them on and then never again.
I keep going back to the doctor. He takes xrays and tells me that all of the hardware is still in place and looks good and that there is no reason for all of this pain and swelling.
He has diagnosed me with RSD. Tomorrow I am scheduled for a nerve block which scares me. I think something is wrong in my foot not just the nerves.
Has anyone else had such terrible luck after PTTD surgery? I want to be pain free and to be able to wear normal shoes again...any suggestions?
