the second surgery 2011 on the other foot I had a wire break during surgery and it caused nerve damage...I have not been able to walk for 2 yrs without a walking boot or a cast and without pain. June 2012 I had the entrapped nerve taken out on my left foot and now I am suffering worse pain I can not even stand on my feet...Why is it that some football

Hello Anonymous,

I am so sorry to hear about your severe foot pain and unsuccessful surgeries.
I can appreciate your frustration and wonderment about injured athletes and their successful recoveries. So much depends upon the extent of the injury and the expertise of the surgeon.
I do know that injured members of the NY Giants seek treatment at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. Top specialists in bone and joint medicine are affiliated with this hospital. It can be all about where you get treated.
