Heel Pain

Posted by Mary L on 1/02/00 at 00:00 (014335)

I had abdominal surgery in August and ever since it seems I have had problems with my left heel, left side. Once I have been walking a while I do not feel it, but it is when I first get up from a chair, first get out of bed, get up from a meal, and I almost lose my balance with the pain. It is particulary irritating as I have a knee replacement on the right knee. I did have polio on my left leg when I was a kid and there was some damage around the ankle and evidence of the polio, but this heel pain is new and very, very irritating. Anyone got any solutions. I will get up from my computer and will hardly be able to walk. Have tried walking around in bare feet today but it did not help much. Thanks in advance
