    I tripped over a dog (who thought his name was "Damnit Cooper"!) resulting in a lisfranc fracture in 2004. I had 6 surgeries including fusion of all joints. I am now 8 years post injury and continue to have severe pain and swelling whether I am sitting, standing, walking, or laying down. I live on pain meds just to be able to function. I have to keep my foot elevated at least 50% of the time. I still have trouble understanding how a broken foot could be so life altering! I know my story is just that and that others recover nicely from this injury. But I feel that this possibility of lifelong problems needs to be addressed too. I don't mean to be "Debbie Downer", just sharing my experience of the lisfranc fracture/dislocation. :(

    Thanks for your reply! I'm sorry to hear you also are having so much trouble but am glad to hear I am not the only one that is having such residual problems! I really need to go back to the surgeon to see about getting this lump removed but I am living on disability income and really can't afford to. Again, thanks for your reply! Jere' Hahn
     
  4. Hi. What lump are you referring to? I had surgery for lisfranc 2 years ago with plates/screws removed six months later. Now i have painful bony lump on top of my foot. Nervous as to what it is.

    That bony lump is very common and usually caused by excess bone growth or arthritis forming, which is extremely common with the lisfranc injury. I would see a foot and ankle Orthopedic Surgeon to be evaluated.

    Thanks
