Re: location of lump under foot after PF surgery.

Posted by Lisa on 5/06/99 at 00:00 (006553)

The lump, or bunch of little lumps as it sometimes feels, is under the ball of my foot -- just below my toes and before the arch part of my foot. I still have tenderness and pain in the heel but Dr. said it is from the incision. ???
If I was to lean forward and stand on my toes with my heel off the floor a bit, at the point where my foot is on the floor, that's where the lumpy part is.
Can this scar tissue be worked out -- or is it for life?
