Well, I am healing nicely from the last set of surgeries this past August 30 (to remove four stump neuromas and re-implant the nerve endings into my arch muscles and tarsal tunnel decompression/release in both feet). Shoes are directly to blame for the Morton's Neuroma; the TTS was due to a birth defect that finally caught up to me, or so I am told. I still have phantom pain, but it seems the burning and throbbing is subsiding a little at a time with water therapy. I can stay on my feet for longer periods of time, although I haven't actually ventured outside to try to walk any distance. The numbness is "mostly" gone. When I step on the slightest crumb (after the first set of surgeries in January and before and after these last set of surgeries), it still feels like I stepped on a needle or a needle went through my toe! That hasn't changed. There are some other things to note, but I won't go into everything. BUT... There is still one problem that hasn't been resolved! I still have a neuroma (perhaps a 5th?!), that feels like it has attached itself to a tendon at the base of my pinkie toe on my left foot and involves that 3/4 interspace once again or possibly the 4/5. Apparently, Dr. Dellon thought he would have caught that with the last set of surgeries, but alas... So, I will be off to visit Dr. Dellon once again in the middle of December to have this thing removed from my foot. If this is successful, I really think (HOPE) I can begin to get back to normal. Damn, it's been a long road! Anywho, I will probably be out of touch for a few days. If something drastic should happen with the site, Willie knows my phone number, and he can reach me by leaving a message with my family here at home. At least only one foot will be affected, and I will be able to walk right away with crutches. He is going to cut my left leg in two places (side of the knee and lower on the leg) to decompress the nerves (common peroneal nerve and superficial peroneal nerve) and then he is going to cut my foot (not sure if it's the top or through the arch again), remove the stump and transplant it into my arch muscle or something like that; we'll know more about all this once we have gone to Maryland to visit him again. So, wish me luck!
