Recent Plantar Fasciitis Surgery June 2010, Hickory North Carolina
by David S
(Hickory, NC USA)
I am 36 years old and have or should say had Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot for years. The pain was so severe I could not perform my job at work, until I finally broke down and went to the Doctor.
I went through other treatments prior to surgery with the shots, inserts, etc and no relief. I had surgery 2 weeks ago and go for my first post op visit tomorrow.
The surgery only took about 30 minutes and the pain that I have experience with this surgery is no where near the pain I had before. My recovery is still ongoing but I really only have discomfort at night from where I have been walking around with a surgery shoe on. I am looking forward to telling my Doctor tomorrow that I have only been out of work for 2 weeks but I feel like I am able to go back and that the surgery was a success.
I would highly recommend this option to all those that are in severe pain and have tried all the other options first.
Good Luck to all and Take Care.
Thanks for adding your experience here.
Would you mind describing your Plantar Fasciitis symptoms and history, so people with foot pain that are facing surgery can compare their symptoms and situtation to yours as they review their options?
If so, thanks in advance!
