Hi GP78, well I am 3 weeks post Moreton Neuroma surgery - yes pain was as you describe. I ended up having a steroid injection between the toes that lasted 3 months the first time and enabled me to continue running...then the pain retuened. Next injection lasted 2 weeks so we decided on the surgery and my consultant decided on the MIND treatment rather than the nerve removal. This is where he has cut the ligaments and made a space for the nerve so I will keep feeling in the toes.
The weeks after surgery are a bloody nightmare, as I had it done the week after Brighton Marathon and really have cabin-fever. I managed to get out for 1.5 miles this last Tuesday and 2.5 miles this last Thursday and ...pain free.
If you do go for the surgery I can give some hints re recovery. Good luck!
