Going in for partial plantar fascia release/heel spur removal surgery

Posted by Valerie D on 3/04/03 at 20:10 (111817)

Hello,
I just wanted to post a quick message to thank everyone for their input and postings. They have been very helpful and encouraging. I have had my heel pain for 1 1/2 years and have tried all of the standard procedures to no avail and so I will be going in for surgery tomorrow.
Marty, if you read this, I just wanted to let you know I will also have a drain for the first 5 days after the surgery, as well as be in a cast with no weight bearing for 3 weeks.
I think that all of the information will be very helpful during the recovery, and thank you all again.

Valerie D,

Are you in Utah? maybe we have the same pod... na what's the chances of that. I wish you the best and hope you come back and let us know how your doing soon. You will like the drain!
