I had the EPF in mid-Jan., and am just now able to walk really well without sharp pain at the insertion sites of the scope, and along the outer edge of my heel. So, I don't think that its really out of the range of normal for you to be having some pain yet. What does the surgeon say? My surgeon told me I was progressing just fine, a little slower than most, but ok.

Have you tried any PT or any swimming? Those might help, but get surgeons ok first. In PT, they can use ionophoresis to put cortisone into the insertion sites, and that might help. If you are interested, ask you Dr. to refer to PT. Good luck.
