Doc says most people with PF recover within 4 months Is that true?

My doctor says that as miserable as PF is, most people get well within four months - provided they follow treatment. Are there statistics on this? Journal articles documenting the average time it takes to get well? As I've said before, my pain is in both my heels and arches, and to a lesser extent, sometimes my ankles (near and around Achilles Tendon - bony part of ankle). Also, bear in mind, my condition came on suddenly while on a track, working out for the first time in years. And my pain gets worse the longer I'm on my feet and not better as I've read about some. I'm just now at the one month mark; so I'm trying to be hopeful.
