Is this a last resort?

Hi,
I'm wondering how long you've had PF and if you have tried all the conservative approaches to treatment. If so, it sounds as though and endoscopic plantar facsiotomy would be the next step not a hole drilled in your spine to deaden the nerves etc. Have you had an EPF? If not, and if you have had PF for several years then I would suggest you look into it before having your spine drilled. Rhonda
