recovery after surgeryPosted by Belinda D on 5/07/04 at 23:08 (150222)
I had surgery on my foot for tarsal tunnel 13 weeks ago. just started pt 2 weeks ago. my foot is now hurting the way it was before the surgery. Is this normal? how long is total recovery from this surgery?

It could be six months up to one year. check with your doctor to make sure this isn't a new problem in addition to surgery healing

I'm five months post op for TTS on my right foot only. I'm walking fairly well but my foot still hurts and I can't stand on it for long periods of time. I am told this surgery takes anywhere from 3-9 months! Yikes.
It gets discouraging but at least I feel lucky to be walking. I still ice my feet when they ache.
I go back to the doctor's in June for a Post-op nerve condution test. The doctor thinks I'm doing well. He hasn't walked in these feet. But at least the terrible pain I had before surgery is gone.
Good lucky with your recovery. Try to keep a sense of humor and watch funny movies. Hope you have a good support system. That helps.

Hi Mona, thanks for the reply. Why are you having a nerve test in june? You had surgery for tarsell tunnel 5 months ago? My doctor told me it was 6 months to a year for the recovery period. Long time but it's worth it not to have the pain I was having thats for sure. Thank you for your reply, E-mail me if you want @ (email removed) Have a good day, Belinda
