I cannot even bear weight on it at all, Cannot work at all ( my job is your feet period) should I opt for surgery?? any suggestions?? right now Im on ice 5 x a day anti inflams ( naprxyn).. taped bottom foot.. heel inserts on cruthes Im at my wits end

See the Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle specialists at Harbor View Hospital in Seattle. They are the best in the business.

Try very hard to get a job that gets you off your feet.

While you are sitting does it hurt, badly?? I'm asking because mine does and I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem.

YES it does....mine hurts as soon as I get up ungodly pain,, then still hurts right into my ankle.. nothing relieves it, they have me on naproxyn 500 mg 2 x day and Vicodin
