Hi sprite. I have a double neuroma in the right foot. The doc said he cannot operate because you cannot cut both nerves without losing a toe, and just doing one would not get me that pain relief that we need.
I too have heard that we can only have so many injections. My thought is they did not get the right spot, and or you are having a reaction to the medication. When I got the injections, despite that hurting, it helped me SO much and I really need to have another done, but I have so many other issues right now that THAT has been moved to the back burner. Sorry you are hurting, I know how miserable this can be!!!
I have a friend that had the surgery and it helped her a lot. She did say it hurt a LOT, meaning the recovery time. When I can, I massage that foot and use ice, which does seem to give me some relief. I am just SO arthritic right now that I cannot bend enough for that foot massage that I need
Keep us posted... Hope you get relief soon!
