WOW, I'm not alone!

Posted by Kathy on 1/23/99
I knew you could find a lot of info on the net, but this is one of the best places I found. It's nice to know I am not alone in this journey. I have been treated for foot pain for the past year or so with very little progress. I did the taping...I did the cortisone injections (a particularly sadistic approach to pain relief!)...I did the ultrasound...I did the orthotics...and I am currently using the Night Splint with very little relief. The next step is surgery, but my job requires me to stand 8 hours a day, with lots of lifting and bending. Am I subjecting myself to a surgical procedure that will not provide long term relief under these circumstances? I am 36 years old and do not intend to retire soon, and the prospects of landing a job that pays while sitting are slim to none. Any suggestions? 17:15:58
