Fatty lump on Ankle Bone
I have a fatty lump..likely a lipoma on both ankles....it is pressing on the nerve in the tallus region ... have seen a foot and ankle surgeon, the same one who did surgery to remove scar tissue in ankle that likely was caused by the problems with the lipoma...which this dr overlooked...now i am not so sure if this is who i want to do anymore surgery on me..
My question is whether anyone has had this issue and if so, did you consider a plastic surgeon to lipo them out...i read that plastic surgeons do this with lipomas..
Since this has been the problem that many drs did not pick up on, for 10 yrs, i want it done correct .... i now realize these lipomas have caused all the issues i have dealt with...it took them finally till now for me to sort it out because the lipoma itself has no feeling in it...i would point them out, and have drs and pts say they did not know what they were making me think it was not an issue...when in fact, this lump on the right foot has been sitting and pressing on vital nerves...
I have no confidence at all in medical professions....but have any of you dealt with this problem and can this be routine for a plastic surgeon...i must get this dealt with very soon or i will not be walking.
