Please take the time to read Scott's Heel Pain Book so that you understand the enite gamut of treatment for plantar fasciitis. Surgery is a last resort and, based on your description, you have not had a complete course of conservative treatment.

I'm in the UK and I haven't heard of anyone whose had PF surgery on the NHS. I've been reading these boards for a few years now. Your best bet is to find a good podiatrist (whether privately or on the NHS)
