Coming out of the closet

Posted by mohez on 5/22/99 at 00:00 (007144)

Well folks here I am, I need your help, anyone please email with with
information or advice. Here is my story: I started having heel pain
five years ago from baseball and ball hockey, so i slowed down both and saw
my doctor. He said i have plantar fasciitis, sent me to his a phsyio and
I had my first pair of orthotics. Did deep massage and ultrasound. Still
kept on playing ball hockey (I should have stopped), iced after every game.
Pain did not stop, so he gave me a cortisone shot on right foot and pain
got worst. This has now taken two-three years with visits to a podiatris
chiropractor and other therapists. Since last year he suggested
I go see Dr. Ogilvy Harris ( In Toronto, thats where i live ). Doc O-Harris
is a renowned orthopedic surgeon (Maple Leafs, Argonauts, National Ballet
of Canada etc). He suggested Night splints (Corflex) and six treatments of
extra corporeal shock wave therapy on the Dornier (German) machine. This gave
little relief. After 3 months i went back to Dr. O-Harris and told him
no significant relief and he slated me for EPF surgery. In the mean time
I had gone to see Dr. Tim Daniels ( guru of the foot and ankle in Toronto)
and he suggest open or instep fasciotomy. I am soooooo messed up right now
I do not know what to do, please if anyone cares help me .

Hey for whatever its worth I'm so sorry. It seems you've done everything known to man and it still hasn't worked. Please dont get so down cause it will whip your butt then. All of us have been there done that with you ,we do feel your pain. There seems to be one thing you have left out JESUS.miracles still happen and the power of prayer is the best and strongest thing on earth. Good luck
