I had the surgery 3 years ago on the left heel after 13 years of PF in both. I think you must be prepared to accept that there is no turning back after surgery. You will not ever again be as good as new. For me it was the right decision and I have a large part of my life back. But keep in mind that is still with one side uncorrected. I think if I knew 16 or perhaps even 10 years ago what I know now I would have been able to prevent the progression and the subsequent need for surgery. I may not have had to live by the self imposed hard rules that encumber me now and irritate my wife. I hope things go well for you and that you find relief soon, good luck.
