heel spur removal

I worked PostOffice for 26 years and walked a mail route each day. I began to have heel pains in the morning so bad I could hardly walk. I had a heel spur removed from my left foot. I purchased orthotics. Please, please get orthothics first before you elect heel surgery! My right heel has a spur also, however the orthotics has eliminated my heel pain. The surgery is a very painful, setback for many weeks and I feel in some cases unnecessary. Please try orthotics (phase 4)are very cheap vs ones from the doctors which are several hundreds of dollars. Just trying to be truthful because I have been there! thanks
