How long before my surgery can be considered a failure?

Posted by Tommy S on 4/05/04 at 18:55 (148443)

I had the ESWT treatment in December 2002,it did not work at all. I had a partial pf along with a tarsal nerve release in October 2003. I am still in more pain in the same exact area of the heel as I was prior to surgery. I have tried physical therapy and e-stem to stimulate recovery, but it has not worked. How much longer should I take the 'let's wait and see what happens' approach before calling the surgery a failure and trying something else?
