Mortons nuroma
#1
Had it taken out of my left foot Friday...Done my best to get the Dr to let me watch...nope he wouldnt.....went back today to get the wound checked..boy howdy is it pretty all the blue and purple colors you could ask for....he said it was the largest he had ever done....I know these facts...it hurts like hell.....pain meds dont even begin to touch it....he said dont walk on it except to the bathroom and back....however my meds keep me dry mouthed so I am always sipping water and up and down on the toilet alot....makes me rethink the diapers thing or just get a padded toilet seat and stay there.....Be glad when it gets well......
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......

Jayne my friend having a nuroma removed is considered one of the most painful surgeries that a podiatrist can do. Especially since doctors are already dealing with an inflammed nerve. I do hope that once it heals that you'll wear 'good' insoles, something with a good arch in them. Did he do decompression surgery or did he remove it?

Prayers for you tonight, prayers, we all need them. Don't stop drinking and don't do the diaper thingy. I still just can't handle the fact that my dad must wear them. Sad, like babies we become again.

Take care my friend,
BB

OWEEE my foot hurts tonight no sleep for me....I unwrapped it as it was swelling and itching and stinging and just hurting.....I very carefully rubbed lotion in and around my foot careful not to get near the stitches.....my 12 year ol Grandson and 11 year old son is awed by all the brusing and the fact that the Dr used "fishing line" to sew the cut closed...lol...I sure hope it stops hurting enough for me to sleep soon....

Been thinking about you Jayne.

I remember the nights of no sleep with my daughter.

Itching & swelling was a problem after her surgery.
I will ask her what the doctor suggested for the itching.

Hi Jayne,

If the 'fishing line' is clear in color they used a suture called 'cat gut' to sew it up. Dissolves pretty quickly, I had to cut some out of my mouth after my surgery when it started poking me.

There are several products that you can use to stop the itching. Bandaid itch gel, benadryl itch stick, etc. Apply 3 to 4 times a day. Lanacane is also a good one, numbs the area a bit too.

Take care,
BB
