| | Bunion and Mortons Neuroma surgery
My story goes like this, September referred to ortho surgeon for painful big toe and he done what he called a click test, and said that I would need an MRI to confirm Mortons Neuroma. He said that he was sure there was one so whilst correcting the bunion he would make another incision and explore. I was in excrutiating pain on waking like treading on glass, he went in underneath. 3 months later I was referred to pain specialist I have been diagnosed with CRPS by 4 consultants. I am on 50mg Amytriptaline and 1800mg Gapabentin and Tramadol 500mg 3 x a day. Phsyio and visits to pain specialist 6 weekly. I have since found out that the MRI scan showed no evidence of a Mortons Neuroma between any spaces. I have never been to GP with pain underneath my feet. I am now on disability benifits and basically it has ruined my life. I am 50 years old relying on people to drive me about, because due to medication I would not be able to drive. How stupid was I !!!!!!!!!!!!!
