Kristie,
It's been 6 months for me and I feel great. Did you have EPF surgery on both feet at same time?

No just the right foot. Thought I'm afraid that I'm going to need it on the other foot sometime.I hope the left foot will get better when I'm not putting that much pressure on it. I just couldn't imaginge getting around with both feet in a cast.

Kristie,
Good luck. I'm very happy I had my surgery. I put it off as long as I could. I used the cross trainer yesterday for the first time in 12 months. Still no PF pain,I'm just gonna take it slow and pray it doesn't come back.Let me know how the surgery goes.
