Morton's Neuroma-STUMP NEUROMA

I had a surgery for Mortonís Neuroma (on November 2002) from my left foot and I developed a stump neuroma. Since then my life has changed drastically. Three months after the surgery I had pain 10 times worse than before the surgery. I had gone to number one hospital and number one doctor in New York after searching treatment for three years. However I ended up with a stump neuroma. My life has chanced drastically since then, I had to quit my job since I couldnít concentrate my work because of severe pain and returned back to my hometown to get some help from my family. I limped 8 months after the surgery. I developed Hallux Vagus since I was trying to walk without stepping to the painfull area. Also I developed knee pain on my right foot and another Mortonís Neuroma since I had to bare my weight to my left side. My surgery doctor ensured me it was going to be a minor surgery with % 90 success rate before the surgery. I think the success rate is much lower than that. After he diagnosed that I have stump neuroma he told me that he had to go and do a second operation from the bottom of my foot this time. The other doctors I consulted say that donít ever let anybody cut under your foot. They say the complications may be worse than the first surgery. I donít want to take another risk. I had 7 alcohol injections to relive tha pain. Even though I had some improvement, the pain that I am suffering is still much worse than before the surgery.
Right now I am waiting/hoping the stump nerve calms down. If I would have known before the surgery I might have gone for EDIN procedure which is non-invasive endoscopic techniques that usually return patients to activities much sooner. It is said that EDIN procedure shows none of the traditional post-op complications as seen in the neurectomy.
I was wondering if anybody knows any cure for stump pain.

Thank you
Sue
