I have had a really difficult time with the healing process. After 4 months I still have an incredible amount of pain at the surgery site and frequent sharp pain all over the heel when I walk.
Could inserting the scope more than once cause extra tissue damage or am I just really slow in healing?
The surgeon seemed to think I should have no pain after a couple of weeks but my family doctor had a look at it and said there is still a fair amount of swelling in the heel and that it could take up to a year to heal. Why is there such a difference of opinion within the medical profession or is it that surgeons won't admit anything less than a perfect result?? HELP
Have you tried any PT or any swimming? Those might help, but get surgeons ok first. In PT, they can use ionophoresis to put cortisone into the insertion sites, and that might help. If you are interested, ask you Dr. to refer to PT. Good luck.
