:confused: Hallo,
Hope you can help. 10 years ago I had a foot injury; another person stepped/ fell on my right foot. Immediately it was swollen over the mid foot area, very painful, I could not put any weight on it, the next day it was worse. went to hospital, they could not see a fracture ( x-ray was taken), after several consultations they put me in a cast, 6 weeks later I develop muscle dystrophy of my right calve musle, and there was this big lump on my middle foot, It is not a ganglion, it is hard in nature. After 4 months of rehab to get me walking again and no one could tell me what was wrong, I ended up in pain management clinic, as I could not bear the pain.
Now 10 years later I am still suffering the lump still there, can you help??
