Hi Karen - I've got it in both feet. I haven't done the cast but just about everything else. I doctor mentioned surgery and I told him that's not for me at this time. He then sent me to physical therapy and I was taught some really good stretches for the calves, some foot exercises like picking up dry pinto beans with my toes and laying out a towel and pulling it toward me using my toes. Also doing the alphabet with my feet from the ankles. The anti-inflammatory I'm taking is Lodine XL 500 mg. I've been laid up for two years and this is the best I've felt. Physical therapy really gave me some hope. I do the stretches in bed everytime I get out to go to the bathroom at night.
