It must grow back or you will lack support in the inside of your foot. We want it to grow back

Krisite used the word 'always' and I really don't know how to answer that with an reasonable precision as surgical treatment of PF has so few good studies. My assumption is that either the PF does grow back in a lengthened position and the patient gets releif or the area fills in with scar tissue and pain continues.

Dr. Ed. What are options if scar tissue grows and creates pain?
