There are times when a patient with neuropathy may need a neurology referral to control their symptoms. ...Read more

I had left foot surgery 8 months ago (navicular area). My foot has been hurting a lot also causing ankle pain. Can the mitek bone anchor be removed?
It would be: Difficult to remove but it can be removed. I would question whether or not its the actual anchor that is hurting. Usually a tendon is tacked down when using the anchor and perhaps the tendon is tied down to tight or something like that.

Surgery? Should this be properly aligned. Broken fibula 2 places! Broken fibula, mid lower section top break, still in alignment but fracture. Lower break separated and off to the side not in alignment but. Back of heal and ankle burning. I have a splint
Without seeing the images, it is difficult to know how much of the fibula is broken and how displaced it really is. The symptoms you're having sound like part of the peroneal nerve is irritated--either from swelling or from the fracture. Most of these injuries are stretch or bruising injuries, called neurapraxias, that resolve with time, usually about 3 months. Occasionally, a nerve can be severed, but usually there is muscle weakness to show the more severe injury.
In principle, fractures of the fibular shaft are left to heal without surgery. We can remove a large portion of the fibula as bone graft without significant adverse effects, so we know the mid-portion of the fibula does not provide structural stability. The closer to the knee, however, the more likely to affect the common peroneal nerve and the closer to the ankle, the more likely the fracture will affect ankle stability.
There are key ligaments that stabilize the ankle in the area known as the syndesmosis. These ligaments can take longer to heal than a fracture or lower ankle injury.
Talk to your treating physician about the location of the fractures relative to the important structures. ...Read more
