Ray:
Surgery for PF can take a long time to heal and that is why we don't approach it with enthusiasm on this site. Make sure that you are not getting excessive scar tissue at the area of surgery with adequate physical therapy. The therapist can also act as a guide to show you which activities help and which can be harmful.
