Endoscopic plantar fasciotomy 2 months ago, still pain in heel

I had endoscopic plantar fasciotomy two months ago, i still experience pain in the heel area, do you think that is too soon to say that the surgery didn't work out?

When i touch where I had the surgery it still hurts a bit, thanks.


Joshua Answers:

Well, technically only a doctor gets to declare whether it's a 'success' or a 'failure'.

And if you just have some pain, doctors are going to call that a success.

Should it still be tender 2 months later on the surgery site? It wouldn't surprise me. You did get cut into pretty significantly. Surgeries causes wounds.

Tendonitis and Plantar Fasciitis are bad enough without hitting the foot with an axe.

Depending on how fast you heal and how healthy your body is, 2-3 months isn't out of the ordinary at all.

If you haven't been icing, then you still have aspects of the Process of Inflammation at play.

How is your foot/feet? Better? A lot better, a little better, no better, worse?

How significant of a surgery did they do?
