Under the Knife For Release Surgery, Still Hurts 4 Months Later

by Chris
(Geneva, IL)

Had release surgery March 2010....heel still hurts. still sleeping with night splint, doctor still has me on anti-inflammatories...

I'm getting very frustrated because I can't exercise. Still hurts every morning....after watching a TV program....after a 30 min car ride.

Not sure what to do next...

Any suggestions??

Hi Chris.

4 months after surgery....ouch.

Well, assuming that the surgeon didn't make things worse in there (and that's a generous assumptions), there are a couple things I suggest.

1. Ice Dip like a crazy person. As described on the How To Reduce Inflammation page. The more dips the merrier.

2. Learn about Magnesium for Tendonitis, and get some in your body.

3. Make sure to read my Plantar Fasciitis pages.

4. Natural anti-inflammatories like Omega 3 oils and Turmeric.

A couple questions.

1. Does it hurt worse now than before the surgery?

2. What kind of release surgery did you have? What exactly did they do in there?

3. It sounds like things get worse after you sit down for a while. True/False? Say more about that.
