I had EPF in '91 and am still having problems with my feet. Later that year my husband and I divorced and I moved back to Mom and Dad's with my kids. I lost 35 pounds and that seemed to help some. My job was a killer on my feet though because I was a lifeguard at a water park and had to run around barefoot on concrete entirely too much. At this present time, I am in my third cast since July. I have now been diagnosed with Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome in my right foot. My left foot is killing me because of having to over compensate...the pain is the same as the PF.
The only thing that I can recommend is that you try to stay off of your feet as much as possible while you are recovering from the surgery. Even though at this writing it has now been a few months, it will take longer to be healed up completely.
Don't give up:)
