I think you should get a second opinion re: surgery; I don't know if your dr. is a podiatrist or ortho, or what. I think a good podiatrist is your best bet - try to find one who is trained in the endoscopic procedure - most of these people can do the surgery either with the scope or traditional incision - then you can have a valuable discussion re: the pros and cons of each type of surgery. I have had this 3 years, almost. My podiatrist is in Houston is an expert in Endoscopic Fasciotomy - he has a web page (I found him thru Scott's heelspurs page) www.footspecialist.com If you are near Houston, I recommend him. There is also a list of other drs. trained in EPF on his page. Good luck!!
