spur on back of heel

Posted by sassyj on 10/10/01 at 07:12 (062618)

I have a spur on the back of heel. Am scheduled for surgery on 10/16. I tried all the usual, cortisone injection, pt and medication. I stand on my feet all day and none of this seemed to help. My achilles tendon is involved. Doctor said surgery wasn't bad but recovery takes a long time. Anyone experienced this surgery and recovery? I also have started taking Viox for some pain in my neck and it seems to have helped the pain in my foot but the big bump is still there. Any suggestions from the doctors about what to do......very nervous about surgery.
