morton’s neuroma surgery


I’m posting this message on behalf of my sister in law who had morton’s neuroma surgery on 4/15/2004 on both feet.
Today is 9/14/2004 and she is still unable to walk.
She has been homebound since the surgery and is still in alot of pain.
She is currently under the care of 4 doctors — her orthopedic surgeon, medical doctor, pain specialist and neurologist.
Two of the four doctors are not sure she has RSD (the pain specialist & medical doctor) since she does not exhibit all the symptoms.
She is on neurotin and pain patch–neither helping to alleviate pain at all.
On top of all the pain is her inability to eat normally.
She is unable to eat any processed foods–only fresh fruits and veggies–as the preservatives cause greater pain in the surgical area.
Any advice you can give would help.
We have no idea what went wrong or if she will ever be able to walk again.
Many thanks. Ceil

  1. I don’t think it will make a difference adding this now…but I have the severe stabbing pains also, where it feels like someone is taking millions of needles and stabbing me. Feel free to email me if you wish to talk more.

  2. I just wanted you to know I have RSD from a surgery gone wrong and I don’t have all the symptoms. I’m on neurontin and a narcotic (which I won’t name in here) with no relief. I’m about to have a spinal cord stimulator placement as a last resort for pain relief. So don’t think you must have all signs and syptoms for it to be RSD. I have the burning, itching and redness. I don’t have the cold clamy skin or anything else. Just thought I’d let you know. Best of luck.
