In Reply to: Heel Spur posted by Jamestown on July 23, 2000 at 03:19:56:


I know exactly how you feel. I had both mine removed & a lot of other work done as well on my feet. I am up this early in the am because of the pain in both of them. Change your course of exercise to swimming this will alivate extra wear & tear on the foot. That has helped alot !!! My orthoedic surgeon just told me today that I will never work my usual 12-15 hrs. days the rest of my life. I'm only 35 with a long way to go. Have you tried any cortisone inj. also sometimes the scar tissue that develops after surgery can be extremely painful. My rt ft. had surgery 5 mths. ago & the Dr spent 45 minutes scraping the scar tissue off of 1 bone w a chisel. I can actually move that foot now however I have grown more scar tissue & I don't know how to get rid of the pain assoc. w the scar tissue. Good luck & God bless. I know what you're going thru HANG IN THERE.


: I have had heel spur surgery on both feet. The right foot in 1995, which went well. The pain gradually faded over a 6 month period.

: Surgery was done on my left foot in August, 1999. I have been in pain ever since. The pain is not consentrated in my heel (although I do have some there), but more so around my ankle. Two months ago, my doctor gave me a heel cup to wear (which I do at all times). It has helped some, but I still can't be on my foot for long periods of time.

: My exercise of choice is walking. I was up to 6 miles a day when I started experiencing problems with my feet. I am beginning to wonder if I will be able to seriously walk again. I am trying to keep my chin up. Please help.

: Has anyone else had this kind of prolonged pain, if so do you have any suggestions?
