Is having a hard heel after surgery normal?

I had EPF surgery about 4 months ago and according to my doctor I'm supposed to be all healed by now. According to many postings on this invaluable site that doesn't seem to be the case with most patients.

I was wondering if anyone out there who is healed , if not cured, has a problem with the entire heel area being very hard and tender. Also, every step that I take results in a sharp, almost burning sensation
around the edge of my heel. The faster I walk, or the harder I put my heel down, the worse it gets.

It seems that every week there is a new and equally annoying symptom that crops up. Hopefully there is an end to this in the near future. Somedays I'm ready to give up hope on anything close to a normal life again.
Good Luck to all you fellow sufferers!!!
