Morton's Neuroma

I am 11 months post op, the burning sensation at the bottom of the foot has resided, can now stand without pain but still have some bad days while walking. We're letting it play out at this time. Anyone have anything to share this far out in regards to their recovery?

thanks

Re: Morten's Neuroma

Hope you mean receded and not resided! Recovery from a neuroma removal (and I am assuming you had it removed not a decompression procedure) is not linear. In other words, you'll go back and forth till it totally heals. I was given a 12 month time frame with mine. It probably ended up being more like 10.

Re: Morten's Neuroma

Yes, I met receded, did I say resided, thank goodness the burning did not establish permanent residence in my foot. I had a complete removal of the nerve. Just getting concerned that I'm almost pushing the one year mark and from what I'm being told that at the one year that's it for any more improvement. I had nerve blocks in the all the web spaces recently with no improvement so we don't think it is from a painful stump. Did your surgeon say it may take longer than one year? Just wondering what sort of improvements you experienced as you approached full recovery, (e.g, able to stand for the most part pain free though pain is produced while walking, burning starts to subside)?

thanks

Re: Morten's Neuroma

with me it was just random. One day I had no symptoms, the next maybe some burning, the next nothing. Then the amount of time between episodes got longer and longer till one day I realized it wasnt happening any more.

Did a sports med ortho who is Foot andAnkle Board certified do the surgery?
