Severe Pain in the Foot
I need some advice, encouragement because I just do not know what to do.
I had TT release surgery (03/22) and it has gone from bad to worse. Each time I went back to the doctor (an orthopedic) I told him I was in pain. I have been unable to walk with out some sort of device helping me (boot, walker, crutches). He is now sending me to a PM clinic. However I am in so much pain that I can not walk on my foot and the pain goes up in to my leg also. The ball of my foot hurts so bad and now I now having pain on the top of my foot and toes. I have burning, tingling and sharp pains which increases when I put the foot down to walk on it. I can barley to any activities of daily living.
My foot bottom of my foot can be red and hot, then blue and sometimes it is white.
I am physically sick worring about my foot and I cry I am in so much pain. I think the nerve is still trapped but the surgeon says it is impossible. I have asked for an MRI but he had not ordered one.
What can I do?
I have gone to PT and I am doing everything they tell me to do. The ankle and toe exercises, the icing, the heel toe walking, and I continue to try to walk with out assistance. It's just way too much pain. When a grown woman cries with so much pain I would think someone would pay attention.
