6 months 2 weeks post op-a major improvment FINALLY!

Posted by Lori S on 11/13/99 at 00:00 (012592)

Until a week ago, I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever get rid of the soreness I feel in the AM. The Dr. said it would take 6 months to a year to heal from my 2/3 release/bone spur removal. I have had MAJOR relief from how my foot felt before surgery BUT I was disappointed that I still had some soreness. I wanted NO PAIN! My right foot has been fine since 4 treatments of accupuncture but I never had the accupuncturist do my surgeried foot as I wanted to see just how much the surgery would help (must be a masochist?)
This past week, upon stepping on the floor in the AM, waiting with gritted teeth to experience the soreness I have been getting for over 10 years, I was pleasantly surprised! Just a slight discomfort! Maybe I am getting better! I am still going to hold off on the accupuncture because I want to KNOW if the surgery works. I still ice every night and have started to use the hand held massager with heat and magnets I bought at GNC.

Glad you are feeling better! Thanks for the info about the GNC massager, think I will try that one first as opposed to spending 200.00 on something that may or may not work.

Glad to hear the success you have had, I am sure you deserve it. Just be careful
and don't do too much too fast.
