Morton's Neuroma excision - Doctors?

Posted by Darlene on 7/20/04 at 15:09 (155931)

I am planning to have surgery to remove my neuroma. Here are my questions:

1. Due to my altered gait I am experienceing metatarsalgia in both feet. Painful balls, burning etc. I previously had an unsuccessful ligament release. This has continued to get worse since my first surgery in January. One doctor suggested that I wait until these secondary symptoms go away before having surgery, but they are only getting worse. What is your opinion?

2. I have a dropped 4th met head from the first surgery. Is there a way that he could bring that up 'while he is in there' that does not involve breaking bones?
Thank you.
