Tarsal Tunnel and PlanterFascia- I have hit the wall !!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Tracey A. on 2/22/02 at 23:35 (074776)

Hello,

Just alittle update on me and my foot woes since last June and 3 surgeries. I saw my doctor today and found out the results of a nerve test. I still have major nerve damage since the surgery for tarsal tunnel in Nov. the surgery failed. No more surgery it will not help. I have hit the wall, now I must adjust my life and learn to live with the pain. I am very upset it didn't work but he was upfront and said it may work, it may stay the same or get worse. I knew what I was getting into with this surgery. I will now try to find an attorney to go after the first two doctors. They screwed up my foot. The pain gets pretty intense at times, makes it hard to sleep. I thank all that have given me advice and input.
I want to give some back to all that's here and all that may come soon.

DON'T HAVE FOOT SURGERY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Tracey A,

I know you said that now you must adjust and live with the pain. Have you thought about daily, long acting pain meds? They can make life tollerable again, and at the very least allow you to sleep throughout the night. This is a good site to check out: http://www.pain.com
I can also point you towards other sites that may be of help. You do not need to suffer, and you will not be 'weak' by taking pain meds. I wish you well.

Hi Tracey,

When you check out http://www.pain.com scroll to near the bottom. There is a section of pain clinics listed. It will get you started, and some of the site's articles will expalin what can be expected. The pain clinics employ many types of treatment, some of which I wouldn't waste a dime on. Like anything, it's best to read, and familiarize yourself with what is available. I'll be around if you have any questions, or would like more web sites. Good luck.

PS Pain relief could be as close as your GP, but you'll have to be prepared, it's not something most doctors are eager begn.
