Posted by Pam on 2/04/02 at 19:35 (072577)

Just wanted to thank everyone for all the advice and support you have given to me over these past few months....this site has been a god sent for me.....I am going for surgery Wed for a partial PF Release and Partial Spur Excision....I will be having the open procedure by both mine and my surgeon's choice......I will keep everyone posted on my post op and recovery period.....I am hopeful this will be the answer to an eight year long prayer for me.....special thanks to all the docs who always answer your questions no matter how busy they may be......I am sure I will have some more questions as the healing process continues....thanks again to all of you.....keep me in your prayers as I will have you all in mine....WoooHooo, I think I see light at the end of the tunnel.....I know this surgery is not a cure but I believe it will give me some quality to my life back :) like my doc says, I have only way to go at this point and that way is UP !!!!!!!!!!

Best of luck to you Pam! I hope you will do as good as I have. My surgery was 12-21 and I'm wearing regular shoes now! I'm amazed at how good I feel. My foot gets very sore when I've been up a lot but it is really coming along. I know it will continue to get better and I can only hope that you will have as much success as I have. I cannot wait to get this surgery on my other foot this summer. It has been a long awaited relief. I'll be praying for you - Sarah T.

Good luck, rest your foot as much as posible, and don't forget the ice. I used frozen bags of peas myself.

PS Some pain is expected, let your doc know if it is so bad that you cannot sleep. Don't be afraid to keep you doc updated on it (pain).
