Re: Heel pain after gastroc recession?
I had a gastroc rec. in sept and come out of the cast and boot before Christmas. The day i came out of the boot i told my doctor that the pain was worst than before surgery. He suggested giving it until the spring before i fully made a decision. It took until early march and suddenly i realized the pain was gone, gradually. I put my self back out on the tennis courts and sure enough, some pain, some ice , the next day less pain and little ice, less pain and with committed stretching program, my heel has at a minimum 80 to 85% relief. It take time and patientce but it works if you start strethching it some.
