Re: Sharie about my surgery

I had p/f for 18 months...tried shots, cam-walker, orthodics, physical therapy, etc. suffered a heel stress fracture last Aug that put me in the cam-walker. Finally had a fascia release and nerve entrapment surgery in March and I don't regret at all. He put me in a hard cast for two weeks and then I used the crutches as needed and I'm doing so much better now..can actually go on walks again. That's what my Dr. did and it really wasn't too much of a problem getting around with one crutch for about a month.He said after he took off the hard cast that I could do weight bearing as much as i can without the pain bothering me.
