Trish --

The body's capacity to heal is amazing. Please think positively that you will make progress -- even if it takes a while. I've had my foot pain for 5 years, and I'm still tinkering with it to see what will work for me. I'm confident that we will both see improvement this year.

It sounds like your current doctor is limiting your weight bearing, and following your recovery quite closely -- which is good. Seems to me I remember that your other surgeon wasn't really WASN'T that responsive...)

I'm with Brian J, it hasn't even been 2 months and yet I know how easy it is to get discouraged. I was still in quite a bit of pain at two months, and mine was successful, so don't give in to dispair -- you can still heal, it just takes time.

Are you going to physical therapy?
