Lump under foot after PF surgery?

Posted by Lisa on 5/05/99 at 00:00 (006528)

It's been 4 weeks now since my PF surgery and I still have tenderness and pain in the heel. My orthotics seem to be rubbing in the wrong place on my arch causing tenderness in the arch. I have tightness inside the arch like something is tearing (or is it healing?).
But my question is if anyone has experienced the lump or puffy-feeling under the ball of the foot after PF surgery? It's painful and uncomfortable. Driving is the worse, trying to push on the gas peddle.
Any ideas or suggestions on what it is and if it's normal for after the PF surgery?

when you say ball of your foot do you mean in the front bye your toes or in back by your heel? I had both after my surgery.
