post op heel/arch pain

Posted by Sharon S. on 3/28/04 at 02:16 (147990)

Ten days ago I underwent a 12 hour reconstructive surgery. When I awoke I had heel/arch pain that switches off between my right and left heel/arch. The nurse said she thought it was due to poor foot positioning during surgery.
The surgeon does not know what the cause is. I went to my primary care physician and he said it was posterior tibial tendonitis. He prescribed an anti-inflamatory drug. That was a few days ago. I am not getting any relief. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
