: : I have a lisfranc joint injury, I'm looking for others with the same condition. I would like to compare notes with someone.

: I have lisfranc fracture. Injury is year old. Had surgery in June 99 and am going to have another in Jan 2000. Feel free to e-mail me and discuss.

I got my lisfranc fracture dislocation in Sept 98. I had open reduction surgery within a few weeks and surgery for screw removal 15 weeks later. I also developed RSD (nerve damage) during my injury (car accident). I regret that my arthritis has already set in. My job requires me to be on my feet and I had to reduce it to only a few hours of week. Fortunately, I own the business and can work at home. However, the pain gets worse if I have to be on my feet for over an hour and absolutely intolerable if it is more than a few hours. Because I got the nerve damage at the same time, I cannot distiguish if what is causing the pain, although I think it the lisfranc injury because of the pain level when I am on my feet. My ankle is also very sore most of the time.

I regret that I must say that my pain has not improved since the initial injury, despite the surgery. Arthrosis is not an option as it may aggravate the RSD. I treat the pain with percocet, up to 4 a day depending on my activity level.

In spite of this, I have seen 2 orthopedic foot specialists, and am seeing my 3rd this month. I am not giving up. That would be my only suggestion to others--keep going. See as many people as possible. Someone must have answer.

Would like to hear from others with their experiences. Hang it. Keep trying.
