Plantar Fasciitis Surgery 3 Years Ago, Was Pain Free, Now It's Returning

by Sal

I’m 62 and have had Plantar Fasciitis pain in my left foot off and on for about ten years. It started out pretty mild and I ignored it a lot, it came and went so I didn’t worry about it.

I had surgery three years ago. After some recovery, I was fine. No pain, no problem.

Until about 6 months ago. The pain has been returning just like it did before. Here a while, gone a while, getting a little worse each time.

I guess surgery doesn’t fix the problem…..and it wasn’t pleasant enough to do a second time.

Thanks for all your info on the site. I’m going to try your Plantar Fasciitis remedy this time, it all makes sense.

Hi Sal.

Well, the good news is, the more you know, the happier you can keep your body.

Plantar Fasciitis Surgery doesn't fix Plantar Fasciitis. It just causes a wound that hopefully doesn't damage the structureal integrity of the function of your mobile bony arch too much.

Pain and other Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms coming back later is common, and to be expected.

Why? Surgery doesn't fix nutritional insufficiency or lower leg issues that causes Foot Tendonitis.

Any kind of Tendonitis can be bad news, but it's all 100% reversible.

Granted, surgery can ruin a foot so 100% back to a pain free state just isn't possible, but even then there's a lot we can do to get it as pain free as possible (which may or may not be 100%).

Hi Anonymous.

What'd the doctor say?

I wish I had got to this submission sooner, I would have had you ask him "Why -exactly- is the same pain and symptoms returning?"

Curious what he would have had to say, or not.
