Having Surgery in 10 daysPosted by Diane on 12/05/98 at 00:00 (002535)
Well, I'm tired of all this pain! I have finally (after 10 months of trying everything else) decided to go ahead with surgery. Does anyone out there that has had it have any advice?

I felt the same way as you do and after a year of pain and trying everything else, I decided to have the surgery also. I had mind done on October 20 and have to say that the pain I feel is only minimal and mostlyr related to some soreness and numbness which most people say is normal. So far I feel much better but time will tell.
P.S. I stayed home for 5 weeks and needed every bit of that time to recup.

I had surgey on my right foot and i don't recommend surgery to anyone. My foot came out worse than before. I was scheduled to have it done on my left foot and backed out at the last minute. I ran out of options and decided to try acupuncture. It has worked like a miracle. I am even back to aerobics. If you haven't tried it you haven;t tried everything. good luck on your surgery. you'll need it. Please research this board. The majority of surgeries are not successful. Debbie
