Dear DR.

I just had surgery 6 hours again. I am having severe pain in my entire foot, heal and arch. Is this normal. What should I do PLEASE respond.

Hi
Ice the area twenty minutes every other hours. You can use frozen peas. Call your doctor and tell him your situation. He can prescribe pain medication and see you as soon as possible. Stay off your foot as much as possible

Katy:
Did you have surgery or ESWT?
