I actually wore the air cast for 6 weeks prior to my EPF surgery. I actually wore it because I had PF and a stress fracture and while it did help when I started walking again it hurt so it didn't help that much. I did some reading on it and found out that 60% of the people that try the air cast go back to their original pain after it's removed but since it helped 40% I would give it a shot. I had to also wear one two weeks after the surgery and it was just heavy and would make my leg tired!
