KNOW A LOT ABOUT TARSAL TUNNEL

Posted by DONNA M on 2/03/03 at 17:30 (107848)

Have been dealing with tarsal tunnel for about 3 years. I has surgery on my one ankel and the first time and second time it did not work, but the third time is the charm. I had a very new surgery done they took a vein out of my leg and covered my nerve with it. The surgery worked but my problem know is I think I have the same think in the other ankel and don't know if I can go through with the whole thing all over again. Hope this helps someone with their problem with TTS.

Hi Donna,

If you finally found something that works, after 2 failures, why wouldn't you want to have the other foot done (with the new procedure)?

Just wondering. and good luck

Dr. Schon also of Maryland was one of the originators of the procedure. I wonder if Dr. Jacobs worked with him.

Please let me know his phone number (either here or if you prefer via my email at (email removed))

Thanks,
Ed
