heel pain

Posted by Mike Z on 12/18/02 at 16:10 (103503)

I have had heel spur surgery done on each foot 10 weeks recovery with each. I still have severe heel pain and can only be on my feet for three hours. I also have Diabetes Type II. My doctor has prescribed Neurontin. Has there been any sucess with this for heel pain. I have worked 35 years standing on cement.

You are very very early in the healing phase of heel spur surgery. Having both feet takes even longer. Phyical therapy may help. Rest, no work off your feet is very important. Two feet is really too much
