Surgery-

Posted by Gail B. on 1/25/02 at 12:22 (071266)

Just wanted to update everyone. I have been posting and reading on this site for a year now, after having bad results from a endoscopic PF release in Dec of 2001. After developing a mass in the instep of my foot and eventually ending up with constant, excruciating pain and many many doctors and surgeons, MRI's, EMG's, custom inserts, mutlitudes of shoes, splints, boots YOU NAME IT. I am having surgery on the 30th of January, 2002 to repair the nerve damage, remove the mass, release the faschia, and repair to the muscle and also tarsal tunnel relief. I don't look forward to surgery and being out of commission to an even greater extent, but am looking forward to positive results and a wonderful recovery. Thank you for all the support your site offers.
