Please don't have the EPFPosted by Becky on 1/28/99 at 00:00 (004058)
I had it Dec 97. I had iced, done PT, worn Orthotics and tried the stretching. It faild. Most likely te EPF is being done by a Podiatrist. They are not MD. They want to make money. Perhaps they can get rid of fungus feet or athletes foot but not plantar fasciitis.
My doc had me up and walking the next day. IT ended up bleeding after the sugery after I had gone home. I had a lot of scar tissue where he made the small insision and scar tissue is not a good thing. YOu will have enough of it with the PFasciitis. Please reconsider and try to go to an Orthopedic Surgeon who shouldn't dare operate on your foot unless it is a last resort. I have had this hoorid thing for four years. Do read the board, it is much more helpful than any doctor you could go to.
