effects of planter surgery

After a person has the planter phashitis surgery, is it common then for the arch to slowly begin to colasp so you become more flat footed? And if that happens, as it will then change your step, will it have an affect on the ball of your foot causing you to walk more on you metatarsils and feel like you are walking on pebbles on the ball of your foot?

That is not ucommon and why many of us favor ESWT.
