I had arthroscopic surgery for torn meniscus and the pain never went away. Finally after going to a doctor on my own, a year later, and not telling them about the previous surgery I was told I had a tear in the meniscus. When I took the information and MRI to the original doctor he said it is a neuroma. Original dr./surgeon performed the neuroma removal at the end of July. Was great for a couple of weeks after the surgery then pain suddenly returned. What started as a small lump under the incision has now grown into a very large and extremely painful lump. Pain is sometimes unbearable. Just visited him for check-up and he says my leg is fine and can't explain the pain other than my leg is hypersensitive because I was on vicodin for almost a year. He said it couldn't be a neuroma because mine was the first neuroma that he has seen in 3 to 5 years. I go back in another 6 weeks were he plans to release me for full duty at work. Pain is sometimes so unbearable that my leg gives out- my job won't keep me if it gives out. Any suggestions???
