Posted by denise m. on 1/14/01 at 14:09 (036598)

I have a lot of pain & some swelling after work. my dr. says to ice it. i think it makes it hurt worse. i had surgery in august of 2000 .i have orthotics. i am ready to change jobs because my foot hurts so bad. i am a deli manager so i am on my feet for 8 hours at least. i have to stand on a concrete floor so i imagine that doesn't help any. any advice would be gratelly appreciated.
thanks peachiz

thats what my dr. told me

You need to rest. If you had heel spur surgery could take six months. Tarsal Tunnel surgery could take even more time. So rest. A boot cast may help if you need to work.
