Had Plantar Fasciitis Surgery in June of "09" now I hate my foot even more than before

I had such severe pain from my plantar fasciitis that I had given up on all things I enjoyed.

This caused me to gain weight and every step I took at work was an effort.

After a year of doctor visits, cortizone shots and medications things weren't getting better, so I opted for surgery.

Bad idea, now the top of my foot hurts more than the bottom ever did.

The way I have to walk now also causes pain in my knee and hip. I am only 46 six years old and I feel like I am 80.

I am never pain free even when I am sitting still.

I have spent way too much money trying to find the right shoe, but I have just given up on that one, there isn't a right shoe.

Still seeing my doctor, he is still trying to help but nothing post surgery seems to be helping.

What can I do, any advice I am willing to try, I just want my life back.

Thank you for letting me vent.

Hi there.

You're certainly welcome. Vent away.

I'm not going to give any suggestions until I see that you found this.

I will say ICE DIP to reduce inflammation and pain!

If you have pain from Tendonitis and/or Plantar Fasciitis, even after surgery, the first thing to do is decrease inflammation to decrease pain.

Hello, can't ice dip at work
by: Brandy

Hello, i got your message I will try a ice dip. But when I'm at work there is not much time for me to do a ice dip and that's when I'm in the most pain.


Joshua Comments:

Hi Brandy.

At work, assuming that you can, every 15-30 minutes, reach down and rub your calves, or punch them 20 times, or or or. It just take 15-30 seconds to do.

Squeeze the sponge. Old stuff out new stuff in and tight tissue gets softened regularly.

Everything works better that way.

Calf muscles and the muscles under/below the calves attache to various parts of your feet. Keep the muscles happy and that will help keep the feet happy.

I know just how you feel I'm 27 and in the same shape but my doctor removed tissue and didn't tell me. was told by a few people that it can be fixed and that it can't be fixed.
