Is there any hope for Morton's neuroma and stump neuroma sufferers?
I had a bad morton's neuroma in my right foot in 2009. I had 3 cortisone shots and a dozen scerlosing injections with alcohol. They did no good at all. I had surgery to remove the neuroma but I ended up with an even more painful stump neuroma. Luckily that responded a bit to cortisone, but it still hurt. Now it is getting worse. The podiatrist I was going to has retired and my new podiatrist only gives cortisone every 3 months. He doesn't do sclerosing alcohol injections. He does surgery for stump neuromas - but it means an incision on the bottom of the foot. I had surgery like that in 2006 for a growth and it took 3 years to heal.
And now I have a morton's neuroma in my left foot. Am I just going to have to accept being a cripple? Or is there any hope for improvment?
