Question for Ike: healing time

Posted by Sarah on 1/28/01 at 13:49 (037584)

Hi Ike,

I read about your heel spur surgery-- glad to hear the first one went well, but sorry you'll have to go through it all again. :(

I just had a bone spur removed from my right foot. I'm not sure if it's the same as yours was-- it's just a 'pump bump,' the technical term is a Haglund's deformity. Is that what you had? I was just curious about how long it took to heal. It's been about 7 weeks for me and I can walk just fine, but want to be able to start running again soon and still have a good deal of pain around the incision. How long did yours take to feel normal?
