Thank you for your reply. Pleaqse could you explain what you mean by 'have it out?' I thought that Morton's Neuroma was a swollen nerve between the toes that causes pain because it is compressed. I don't know what causes it though.
If I did have a cortisone injection does it still mean that when it wears off the problem will re-accurr?
I have heard that the operation can be performed going from underneath the foot or from the top. If it goes from the underside I read it can take a long time before it is ok to work on.
Appreciate your advice Jo
