Foot pain and lump

Foot pain and lump

Hi I posted this in pain concern but got no replies so thought I'd try here.

I hurt my foot in may last year I missed a step and landed on top of my foot which twisted it round.

I had an x ray when it first happened they said nothing was broken but that there is a cyst from a past trauma. It causes me a lot of pain every single day and I'm on my feet a lot because of my job sometimes for 14.5 hours in a day.

It hurts a lot when walking but when I'm relaxed I get twinges and shooting pains and my foot feels like it might start cramping up.

What do people do for this sort of pain? I have been waiting for an appointment since summer last year and I finally have an appointment next week with trauma and orthopaedic surgery. Has anyone had any experiences on what to expect?

I'm open to having surgery if needed as I can't go on everyday in this pain. What should I expect?

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

  • Looks like what I have had. Damage to your ATFL. I had to have surgery to reconstruct the ligaments (and a repair to a split peroneal brevis tedon). They didn't discover exactly what the problem was until I had an MRI scan. I had surgery at the beginning of October and have only just started on physio & hydrotherapy. It is a slow healing process, up to 12 months from surgery.

  • Thank you for your reply

    oh no that doesn't sound fun hopefully I will find out on Wednesday. Did you have to have surgery or was it your choice? It just kills every day.

  • I was told after the MRI by the orthopedic consultant that surgery was my only option to rectify the problem I had. He took one look at the MRI result and said surgery is the only thing that will sort this out and referred me immediately to the surgeon who did the operation.

  • Thank you Allison

    I hope it doesn't take you too much longer to heal.
