Laurie: I just had a release done but I also had a heel spur removed. I'm in a cast till Aug 10th so I'm not sure yet how or if it worked. I will keep you posted though or you can email me.

Thanks---Karen

Hi Laurie,

Although spur and scar tissue removal was a major part of my surgery, I also had the fascia release. My left (surgery side) foot is far more flexible than the right side. As you know the surgery was a major success for me. Things continue to go well as far as the heels go.

See Ya,

Rick

i had a fascia release in august 99. my foot is no worse or no better. the problem as i see it is the surgeon only released about 15% of the fascia. the fascia on the foot that was operated on feels as tight as the one that was not operated on. a couple of other doctors have told me that there should have been at least a 50% release of the fascia.
