cuboid lateral syndrome?????

Posted by Rose on 3/23/04 at 01:11 (147576)

I had open release surgery 8 months ago. Just recently I have periods of severe pain on the outside edge of the foot that runs to the bottom of the foot. On top of the foot it seems to be bwtween the 3rd and 4th toe. It is almost completely disabling for a while. Is this possibly the cuboid problem at this late date after surgery> I welcome suggestions as to what I should do,. Thanks so much.

Hi Rose,

If could be compensation or lateral cuboid syndrome. It could also be a neuroma. The first thing to do is get an evaluation to determine exactly what the problem is. Do you wear orthosis.?

Thanks so much for the quick reply. Yes I do have aothodics. I had a neuroma on the left foot that was released at the same time I had the open release for the PF on the right foot in July. This is a more severe and intermittent pain than I felt with the neuroma on the other foot.
