Options surgury not succesful

Posted by jrody on 10/29/00 at 21:03 (031601)

I had surgury about 4months ago for planter faciitis and I am still having severe pain in my foot.Am I at the end of my options? Also is it normal to feel the tendon moving inside? I know that your occupation can play a role in healing time but is 4 months to early to panic since I am on my feet fo my job.

It can take a while to recover from surgery and the amount of work you make your feet do in the mean time can have an effect on this. Dr. B.
