6 1/2 months post op flat foot reconstruction

I'm 6 1/2 mo flat foot reconstruction and metatarsal fusion. Every time I take a deep breath or cough I get a stabbing pain on the top of my foot where I had the metatarsal fusion. XR and CT are fine. Has anyone experienced this?? This pain started when I went back to work.

Re: 6 1/2 months post op flat foot reconstruction

I had the same thing - when I took a deep breath in I would get a sharp stabbing pain at my joint. My doctor thought there could be temporary nerve damage. He prescribed Lyrica which took about a week before it worked. I stayed on it for a couple of months then weaned off of it. For me, it was temporary and I have not had this problem anymore. It may be worth talking to your doctor about it.

When I brought it up with my doctor, I really was afraid he would think I was crazy but he did not. He really took me seriously. Talk to your doctor, the Lyrica really helped me.
