In brief: Stump Neuroma?
A stump neuroma can occur after neuroma surgery.
This is caused when then end of the nerve that is left after surgery scars. This puts pressure on the nerve endings and can lead to similar symptoms as before surgery. Cortisone injections can be helpful if done early. If this has become chronic, then additional surgery is usually necessary. Discuss with your foot surgeon. Dr l.

In brief: MAKE SURE
Although it could be a stump neuroma, talk to your surgeon about other things it might be.
Tarsal tunnel syndrome comes to mind.
