Pain after surgery

Posted by LoriS on 12/23/99 at 00:00 (014052)

Colleen, I had 2/3 release conventional surgery and bone spur removal 8 months ago this Monday. My Dr. said I should have recovery at 6 months to 1 year. I had ups and downs for 6 months and have finally started feeling relief in the past 2 months. Yes, I had PT several times a week once I started to bare weight on my foot. You need to give it time. Surgery was a last resort and sometimes does not work. I had no other choice as I had lived in pain for over 10 years. I hope your surgery is a success. I believe mine was and my foot gets better each day now.
