Heel spur

Posted by Linde on 5/16/01 at hrmin (048029)

Hi.Here I am to have surgery on my left Heel. Ihave a big jagged heelspur digging upwards into my Achillis Tendon.iam more scaared of the drugs that bing adminestered to me during the surgery.Since I juust need a verry small amount of any drug to do its job. Also I dont take anything,scared of sideaffects. And I had a few.irreg.Hearbeats,Hig bloodpressusre from cortison injections ect.Is there any drugs out there with mini side affects or none.I was told the Achillies tendon has to be cut away in order or reach the heelspur and then screwed back on.Is that the only prositure out there? Please let me know.
