Morton's Neuroma

I have suffered from Morton's Neuroma for over 8 years now. I think I have tried all the possible cures fron Orthotics to Cortizone shots to Alchol series shuts (10 sessions) to Acuponcture. Te pain continued as I was running, cycling dancing and hiking. On my last Triathalon this past April 1st the pain was more overwhelming than the effort of competing in a Half Ironman. So I finally decided to take the final step Surgery. I read lots of reviews on the web on Surgery but decided that since I tried all other options it was time. So on May 30th I had surgery on my left foot. The surgery was a non event, I was home two hours post surgery and was in pain for less than 24 hours. I spent the first two weeks resting, mostly with my foot elevated and iced most of the time. Two week post surgery the stitches came out and it was great relief. Now, week 3, I was able to ride (seated only) and climbed Page Mill just a few minutes slower than my usual. I swam on Wedne
