stretching muscles in an injured foot...

hi thanks for all your previous help with my "triple arthrodesis" thread...i have been diagnosed with a tarsal coalition in both feet after an injury where i sprained my ankle, then it never healed and they gave me an MRI and found the coalition in my right foot.. have been in an orthotic boot to stop the pain when i walk unitl ihave surgery in jan.. now my right foot started hurting becuase of all the extra weight i have been bearing on it.. and sure enough.. i have a tarsal coalition there too, so i am eventually going to have to have the surgery on both feet.. in the mean time i noticed that some of the surrounding muscles, especially on the bottom of the foot near the arch, tend to seize up and cause a lot of pain.. does anyone know if it i sok to try to stretch these out? or any good exercisesthat will stretch them without effecting the coalition area? The muscle or tendon or whatever it is that goes from my arch towards my big toe gets soo painful.. any suggestions? Thanks!
