Hi Dr. Kolodenker,

I had posted to you a while back, since then I received another opinion and had surgery on 10/10/2017 for flatfoot reconstruction and also had a 3rd TMT joint Fusion for a missed dislocation of the 3rd metatarsal that I sustained when I had a lisfranc Injury 5/2016 and had a plate and screws removed over the 1st metatarsal. I had the following Procedures done:

Gastrocnemius Recession
Calcaneal Osteotomy (heel slide)
FDL tendon transfer
Removal of the accessory navicular bone
Spring ligament repair
Hardware removal 1st TMT
3rd TMT Fusion.

I was non weight bearing for 7 weeks then progressive weight bearing over 4 weeks in a boot. I have just completed 8 weeks of physical therapy, I also have custom orthotics and am wearing shoes all the time.

On 1/5/2018 I saw my doctor for a follow up appointment, he notified me that my foot has collapsed again and is as pronated and has forefoot abduction that is almost the same as before surgery. I am still having a midfoot pinching pain very similar to before surgery that hinders having any normal gait and I also am still having outside foot and ankle pain, which my surgeon feels is due to impingement from the pronation.

My surgeon had planned on removing both plates in my foot and also had said he was going to do an Evans Osteotomy and possibly a cotton Osteotomy prior to surgery, but changed course during surgery, because he thought the spring ligament repair would correct the issues. He has said that he should have removed the plate and should have done the Osteotomy.

After 4 surgeries I am very concerned about having any further Surgeries, but I also can't handle the pain I'm experiencing. If I wait on revision surgery do I pose the risk of causing more issues, or is it safe to wait at this point? Also normally for revision surgery is Fusion my only option? I'm 33 and am very worried about never getting mobility back. Lastly I live in very northern California, your office is 7 hours from me, do you have any recommendations for other opinions I could seek in the Sacramento area which would be 2-3 hours from me.

I am so sorry for the long post, I feel lost and I am not sure where to go from here. I will post x-rays and a picture of my foot in the comments.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Hi Doctor! I loved your Youtube video on the Lisfranc Injury. Also, I wanted to take you up on the offer to post my story to get your opinion. Here are the facts:

-Injury happened 6 weeks ago.
-Received X-rays but no displacement was shown since they were not weightbearing.
-I was told to wear a CAM boot until I felt better.
-3 weeks later I wasn't better and they ordered an MRI.
-MRI said, "The dorsal and intraosseous components of the Lisfranc ligament are thickened and edematous without clear evidence of complete disruption. The plantar portion of the ligament however inserts on the aforementioned fractured fragment. These findings are suggestive of a significant injury to the Lisfranc ligament complex."
-I then went to a specialist who did the weightbearing x-rays attached.
-He said I had 2.5mm diastasis but since I seemed stable on physical evaluation (piano key test, etc.) that I could stay with conservative treatment.
-I have been nonweightbearing -- still in CAM boot -- for the last two weeks.

What reccomendations or adivce do you have for me? I don't want unnecessary surgery (especially if the Lisfranc screw can prone me to arthritis in the future as you mentioned), but I also don't want a long-term problem. This is a confusing injury.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
I injured myself 5/2016, had ORIF 7/2016 of the 1st and 2nd tmt joints, I ruptured the lisfranc and plantar ligaments, no bone involvement. I hardware removal 11/2016. In January I was having pain and instability similar to before surgery, my doctor said the Surgery had failed and I had fusion 2/2017. I have been walking in shoes since 4/28. I continue to have a pinching stabbing pain with each step in the fusion area, and now I'm also having the same type of pain in my 3rd TMT joint as well. My surgeon says all looks well fused and he is not sure what's causing the pain. He wants to do HWR to see if that helps. I have had cortisone injection into the first inter cuneiform and the 3rd TMT joint. I had about 3 days of less pain and now the pain is worse in the 3rd joint then before and the same in the fusion site. I have received
custom orthotics as well which so far have not helped. When I stand barefoot on my foot it pronates severely and I lose my arch, I asked my doctor and he said "it could be expected". Do you believe that HWR could help my situation and is pronation after fusion expected? My other foot does not pronate. I also have a hard bump over the 3rd TMT joint now that wasn't there prior to the cortisone injection. Attached is an x-ray 6 weeks post op, I don't have a more recent x-ray available.
I have always wondered if podiatrists would think eating corn flakes is just too weird.
Hi Ive been having a burning pain throbbing pain in top of foot on the site where, I broke my 5th metatarsal bone 2 years ago .what could be causing this ? I was diagnosed last year with a heel spur with plantar faciatitis could that be causing this?
Just needing advice..
I am currently 4 years post op open reduction and fusion of the 1st and 2nd metatarsals due to breaking most of the lisfranc joint and dislocating all five toes. I originally had 14 screws and three plates which were removed a year later. I still have tremendous pain most days and now, four years out, I have arthritis setting in. My orthopedic surgeon suggest more surgery, a pain specialist thinks it's nerves. Nerve conduction study came back normal. My large toe is slowly separating from foot and I have large swelling over last three toes. Where do you find relief!? I have now lost my job and I am ready to go to an er just for relief!? Any suggestions???
Dear Doctor Kolodenker, I have had a wound on the bottom of my foot since I had a operation in 2013. The top part of the foot healed but they released me from the hospital before the bottom healed. I have a quarter size hole on the bottom of my right foot. I saw the video where you cut the hole out and then soded the foot back up.
How much do you charge to do this operation? I live in Texas and not sure if my insurance will cover it.
I'm 8 weeks post my surgery ,in a walking boot ,I still have pain when bearing weight. Have 3nscrews and a plate needs to be taken out in June. When will I be able to walk Normal without pain or a limp?
