I have a small fibrous tissue located in my arch which was painful to walk on. After physical therapy it still remained. I conpensated my foot position so I would not walk directly on it therefore tilting my foot slightly outward. After months of this , the fibrous tissue (which is about marble sized) became less painful and now doesn't hurt. It is recommended by a pediotrist to get it surgically removed and wear a cast for up to 4 to 6 weeks. My ankle and instep has developed a tendonitis and feeling of a slight sprain at times. What do you think about surgery for this tissue which no longer hurts?
