It seems to me it is awfully early...

for you to go ahead with surgery, but if you decide to, be sure to read Scott's 18 pages of information first. Also, read all the posts pertaining to surgery. From what I see, it is risky at best. There are many other things you could try first. At least read all you can so you can make an informed decision.

I know how you feel, not being able to walk like you did. Every day I watch my friend I used to 'walk and talk' with go walking with someone else. As a consequence, I have gained weight, and miss the camraderie. And you're right, no one seems to be able to understand just how much pain this is. Everyone has had 'sore' feet at one time or another, and probably uses that as their frame of reference. Everyone at this board understands, though.
