Plantar fasciitis release with Calf release 12/28/2017
(New York )
I have suffered moderate pain for 2.5 years. Just irritating where I put on 45lbs not being able to get moving because it hurt. I just kind of walked threw it for a while changing shoes, resting, getting some inserts, then I was really hurting and thought I should see someone.
I saw a podiatrist locally who said I had Plantar Fasciitis took me out of work put me in a waking boot and said let’s see how this works with rest.
Gave me exercises to help work threw whatever was going on. I did them wore the boot. No relief.
More time pain begins to radiate around to the other side, I go back but this time she says it’s tendintis pain. I was not convinced of that. So I went to another Orthopedic foot Surgeon to have my foot examined. Plantar fasciitis diagnosing. MRI to rule out any other causes. My foot was in perfect health.
Surgery recommended and was told I would be down non weight Bearing 7 days. Up and around by 7-10 I could return to normal activity by the 10 day. However Full Recovery to know for sure if it worked if I would be pain free would be 3 months.
December 28th I had Surgery. December 29th I felt as if my toes were trapped. Like they were all asleep and stuck under the cast. I had the cast removed, they were not trapped however that feeling has never gone awAy. It’s kind like something is stuck between my big toe and the others and it feels like they are all asleep.
I called the office each day for 10 days to tell them that something was not right with my foot.
My pain was not managed, I was not cared for and generally speaking I was left after a surgery to try to figure out why I wAs feeling this way. I cried myself to sleep for 2 months. I was not able to put weight on it at all even in
the walking boot. Each call into the office I heard the same thing. You had a major surgery. In my visits leading up to it, it was not a major surgery. It was no big deal.
After my 10 day post op, I became a pain in the neck so I was transferred out into a Pain Management Clinic. To keep my medication intact. Thankfully so. They gave me a nerve medication for my toes that helped settle the tingling.
Feb 17th I was weight bearing in a walking boot. The most excruciating pain 10/10 I’ve ever felt but I walk for the first time.
Feb 21st we started Physical Therapy. Very hard but I’m managing.
Each day gets a little better. I can’t miss pain medication or nerve medication or I’ll pay for it later.
I’m not sure if I would ever recommend anyone to put themselves through this.
I’m pretty sure I have serious nerve damage caused from a careless uncaring surgeon. I pray that no one ever has to go threw that.
