Morton Neuroma Surgery

I forgot to asked, how long does the surgery take for the morton neuroma, and did you have general anthesitha, or local, I have asked to be put to sleep, how long did you stay in out patient department before coming home, also do they give you crutches, or your walk out or what....just wondering on some more questions...If anyone can be so kind and answer these, I sure would appreciate it..and of course mine is on right foot, so how long will I be out of driving??
Thanks
HopeFran

Re: Morton Neuroma Surgery

It took maybe 20-30 minutes. I had general anesthesia. I went at 5 AM and was home by 10 AM. Yes, they gave me crutches but except for walking out of the facility, I never used them again. Since you will have a surgical shoe on your right foot, you should not drive till after the doctor tells you that it is no longer needed. In some states, it is against the law to drive with one.
