cuboid pain

Posted by lisa h on 2/19/05 at 08:23 (169401)

I had surgery 1/28/2005 and I wanted to know if this pain was normal after surgery on the outside of my foot,the cuboid bone.

Lisa:
I would not use the word 'normal' but would say that a very common complication of plantar fascial release surgery is cuboid syndrome since the plantar fascia no longer supports that bone when released. If you are experiencing that, it seems that results are better when acting on it sooner than later so be sure to let your surgeon know about it.
