Plantar Fasciitis surgery

after suffering with Plantar Fasciitis for past couple of years, last Thrusday I had surgery to cut the ligament under my foot. I went through alot of different tests and procedures and had radio frequency done also. Nothing helped. The doctor also fixed the nerves in my big toe, which were a mess since I had bunion surgery with a different surgeon last year. He told me there was a lot of scar tissue and my nerves were all tangled up.

I was fitted with a aircast and not really sure how to inflate and deflate it. My heel and toe are very sore right now and I am in a lot of pain. The doctor gave me ketorolac 10 mg which I have been taking for the last 4 days/


Just want to know if anyone else had this surgery and what I can expect. Also, can someone please tell me about the aircast, every time I wear it my heal hurts so much. I just want to be able to walk again without the pain all the time

Call your doctor's office that is what they are there for. The aircast shouldn't cause you more pain.
