PF Release & Heel Spur removal on Right Foot

Posted by Barbara G. on 7/28/02 at 13:52 (090809)

So far so good for me. It's only been alittle over 2 weeks & I'm hardly in any pain. I still have my stitches in, they're to be removed next Thursday, 3 weeks after operation. I was not put in a cast but for two weeks I had a splint & an ace bandage wrapped around my foot. The past Thursday (2 weeks after the operation), the doctore removed that & just put a band-aid over the incision. I've been on crutches since the operation with no pressure on the foot & keeping in elevated. After my last dr's apt I was told I could start 'testing the waters' by putting pressure on the front of my foot. I actually took a shower & did put pressure on the front of my foot & so far so good. I still have swelling on my heel & again, I have not put any pressure on it as of yet. I'll keep you informed after my next apt on Thursday. Good luck everyone.

Excellent! Good for you. Keep us posted on what you're feeling. It's good to hear from others going through this! I'm at almost 2 months since surgery now. Still reading to see if the things I feel are within the realm of normal for a successful outcome.

I have this performed in 3-03. I was in surgery for 30 minutes, fitted with a 'boot' on crutches for 2 days and on the 3rd day was walking. Stitches were removed on the 6th day and I went back to work on the 7th day after removal. I have not had any problems since.
