foot operation

Posted by dan on 5/18/01 at hrmin (048216)

I had a operation (2 time) on my right foot to remove cyst like mass underneath the arch of my foot. I know these can grow on your hand and are called 'dupuytrens' but I can find no information on the web about them growing on your feet. Can you help out?

Dan, this is called plantar fibromatosis in the feet. I've searched for it on the web in the past and found a lot of information.

Can't recommend any specific site but you might try searching with Google. It's a good search engine.

Dan, if you find any sites, please let me know. I have looked all over the web and haven't found much. This is the best site if you can catch somebody that has fibromas. I have a huge one on the bottom of my foot and I am scheduled for operation in August. How did your operation go?
Thanks, Brad

The operation overall went well but, I am still not up on my feet since the operation - april 19 - this due to the skin around the scar formed a blood blister, that slowly turned into a big scab on foot. I proably waited too long to have the operation which relusted in the Dr. having to do alot more work inside my foot, this include scrapping the mass from my skin. I have also have might have some nerve damage to my big toe but, we will have to wiat a while to see if nerves will recover.
