finally had surgery

Posted by caryne on 4/01/00 at 00:00 (018132)

Well, I finally had surgery Thursday morning. Im in a hard cast now and using crutches for a while...hopefully I won't need the crutches after next week. Heel pain isn't so bad..the nausea and vomiting from the general was the pits all day yesterday.At least it took my mind of the heel pain. Will keep you posted in a couple of weeks after I can see if this has worked. He did a fascia release, removed some scar tissue and a ganglion cyst thing. After 15 months I was ready for something.

I had endoscopic surgery on Jan 18. Still have a little discomfort walking without shoes, but getting better each week. Have been gardening up a storm, which in the past would have crippled me, but now I can do things I couldn't even attempt last fall. I feel like I have my life back, and I still have a few months of healing to go. I will not hesitate to have my other foot done if necessary. Good luck!
