Hi, well, my dr. described lateral column pain as being on the outside of the foot, on the top, and extending down toward the little toe. Does that make sense? He said its caused by walking on the foot after surgery, before the fascia has healed sufficiently, and the forces of walking are transferred to the outside, top of the foot, above the little toe, about half-way up the foot. Wearing the surgical boot for many weeks will reduce the chance of getting it, according to my doc. So, he wanted me in the boot for 6 weeks, because of the mechanics of my foot I was extra prone to get it. I didn't.
