Neuroma, alcohol or cortisone?

Posted by judy on 7/05/04 at 17:04 (154548)

Which is best for neuromas? Alcohol injections or cortisone? Is it best to start with cortisone and if that doesn't work, then try alcholol? Thanks!

I have used Alcohol for the past five years plus with very good results.

Dr Z, should I ask for that? My pod, had me try orthodics, after several months and different types, no luck at all.

So should I ask for alcohol, if she offers cortisone?

HI
Not every podiatrist knows about this treatment or offers.

Please Pauline! I come here to see what people post and if anything seems to be in line with my problems that I could learn from. I'm really tired of seeing you harp on Dr. Z like a fishwife. If you have that big of an axe to grind, launch your own website to do it.

I don't know you, I don't know Dr. Z....time to just let this go, ok?
