Many Thanks, Many More Questions
Posted by Suzanne on 1/24/99
Thanks Robin, Sandy, Bobbie and Sue for replying to my first message. I appreciate your advice and feel welcome here. I plan to read as often as I can, so know I will be in touch. My foot has been taped for 48 hours right now, and so far I can tell a difference. My dr told me not to go barefoot (even in the house) so I have been wearing a pair of Dr. Scholl's version of the popular Birkenstock (sp?) sandal. Does anyone know anything about these? They are what I have on hand and they are also open as I love not having my feet closed up in shoes all day. My feet like to breathe! If I ride a stationary or outdoor bicycle,do I have to make sure the pedal is in a certain position on my feet? Being the owner of 2 dogs who love to walk as much as I do, this diagnosis is a big setback. Yet I also feel that my case may have een caught fairly early before I continued to do further damage. Fortunately, I love to swim and swim on a regular basis, but I have noticed that my foot hurts after I've resteed from my swim and am on it again. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks again everyone for your help, support encouragement.
