Stinging pain in foot
I had flat foot reconstruction 4 years ago and have had a constant very painful stinging pain in an area where the surgeon made one of the incisions. After seeing several doctors, one doctor said it was probably a compressed nerve. She performed surgery on my foot and found that part of my saphenous nerve and been pushed down inside my foot and that what was causing my pain. She reset the nerve and was sure that would stop the pain. After a year, I still had the pain. She said the only thing left she could do is to cut the nerve completely above my ankle to stop the pain signals. I had the surgery 2 months ago and still feel this pain. She concluded that I am having phantom pain. I know a lot of amputees have this but I still have my foot and just don't think that is what it is. Does anyone have ideas as to what I should do next? I am at a loss. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
