Progressive Pain

By Laurie, Ledderhose disease, United States, April 3, 2018

My left foot

About ten years ago I felt a painful lump in my left foot. I ignored it thinking I must have stepped on something. Over time I did a bit of research and discovered I have Ledderhose disease. I had my first surgery when the lump got so big that it was like walking on a rock. I was told it could back. Oh it came back alright two years latter I had three lumps. Surgery again . Now I have five huge painful lump s  on my left foot. I have a new lump on my right foot and my hands are getting lumps and pain. I am scared I will become disabled . I don't know what to do.
