Unhappy Pinching pain after Triple Arthodesis

I am 65 yr old female and had triple arthrodesis 2 years ago of left foot, cadvar tendons inserted and cysts removed. I' m loaded with screws and plates.
Six weeks ago i started having a pinching pain when i walk. Saw the surgeon and he said I was fine and that i might have overdone myself?

Well I'm still having this horrible pinching pain when i walk, first thought my shoes where to big and went down a size. No change I've iced it and take motrin, nothing.

Will see another MD, has anyone else had this problem?

Don't want to have another surgery. I've been told that sometimes the plate and screws have to be removed. , I was in a twilight sleep vs being knocked out.

Re: Pinching pain after Triple Arthodesis

Could be a screw. I had to have one of mine removed a year after my triple. Where is your pinching? It could also be soft tissue something depending on where it is. Is it constant? The screw removal was no big deal. Just healing incision time.

Re: Pinching pain after Triple Arthodesis

Thank you so much, I have pain on the inside lateral right where my arch (which he build that I ddin't have before) is. I have to walk slowly otherwise I cringe with the pain. Went to my surgeon he saw nothing I feel he blew me off. Do have an appointment with someone else next week. Thanks again. I appreciate it so much.
