Torn Posterior Tibial tendon,and Plantar Fasciitis

Posted by Linda on 3/24/04 at 12:23 (147671)

I tore my left Posterior Tibial Tendon,and I'm in a cast for the next 4 weeks,but i am also having severe pain in both my feet due to plantar fasciitis. I was on celebrex,but they don't seem to help at all.
I tried aleve,and that doesn't work either. I have been icing my feet with every chance I get. I have new orthotics i got in December. I also have fairly new sneakers. While I am non-weight bearing,is there anything else i can do to relieve the pain in my feet?
I have 2 kids,so i have to drive and be on my feet through-out the day.
