hi, well mine hasn't been in the last 2-3 yrs but I thought I'd post anyways. I had a small incision inside of my heel, can't remember how long I was NWB, I just wore a surgical boot though. It did hurt right much afterwards but I also have fibromyalgia and have a low pain tolerance.
Its great now though and am so glad I had it done! I suffered for at least two years with it. Its as if I didn't have it done except my arch is a little lower on that foot and I have no pain!!
good luck, Cathy
