3months post-op pain, Normal?

Posted by Barb F. on 9/18/00 at 22:56 (028611)

Had open release June 1,2000.Had walking cast till 8weeks post op. no improvement noted after procedure, in fact pain worsening. Able to stand or walk for 30min. to 45min tops. After that pain throughout the foot necessitating being non weight bearing for the rest of the day. Any hope for improvement yet to come? Trying to stay optimistic but starting to lose faith.Thank you.

It is possible . YOu can have pain up and down sometimes up to six months. I have used ESWT for this delayed healing problem and or heel release failure with very good results. Go to the ESWT section and read about ESWT.
