A note on my progress

Posted by Andrue on 7/28/02 at 05:53 (090785)

I posted a few weeks back that my new doctor had put me on a prescription NSAID (Diclofenac). Well it's done the trick. The pressure points at the base of my arch on the inside heel are now not sensitive. I went to my osteo. on Friday and he gave them the usual deep tissue massage (which may also have been a factor in my recovery) and it was fine. Okay so it wasn't enjoyable but I doubt if even a normal healthy person would appreciate someone digging into their foot like that.

I still have some foot discomfort but I think it's from other tendons/muscles that either need training or else will settle once I return to walking normally.

I am not so naive as to say that I'm cured but I think it's safe to say that I'm now convalescing. I have high hopes that by the end of the summer my PF will be a distant memory.
