Just had sugery on one foot and getting ready for second in 3 weeksPosted by Dawn on 11/11/98 at 12:34 (002123)
I have had this pain in my feet for over two years now. after trying everyting from ice to ultra sound , orthodics and night splints. Its has allowed the condition to worsen. the doctor explained to me that not only with heel spurs is plantarfasciits but also tarsal tunnel syndrom. this after a long peroid of time can do nerve damage. Vitamin B6 has been suggested to take prior to any surgery and after foot surgery. I was operatered on 1 week ago and have very little pain. The nerve in my foot was crushed and was completely repaired. after the surgery I had instant releif of back pain that i developed after several months of the foot pain. Prior to the sugery I was completely disabled. Anyone that would like more info or just keep track of my progress just E-Mail me.

Wow..One of the few success stories I've read on this site pertaining to surgery. That's great for you. I'd like to know if your surgeon went in through your heel or the side? My doctor won't risk the side/lazer surgery because of the potential nerve damage. I'm still trying to avoid surgery - but, I'd like to be as informed as possible in the event that I go ahead with it. Take care.

Thanks for posting a success story with surgery especially since you have nerve involvement with the PF. My doc said I had nerve involvement and did not think surgery would help me.
Where is your doctor?
I tried to e-mail you but it came back to me.

I am having the surgery in December. I have decided to go ahead with it because I have tried EVERYTHING else. Could you please give an update on how you are doing? Thanks.

I had the endoscopic surgery 4 years ago, and it was a total success, though I understand many people don't experience the same good fortune. Had the surgery on Friday and back to work on Monday. I am considering it in the left foot now.
