A year and a half ago I had the ligaments cut along the bottem of both of my feet in effort the relieve the pain from heel spurs. What should have tured out to have been a few weeks at most out of work has turned in to a year and a half of crippling pain along the middle and top of both feet as well as into the ankles.
I've been to many many doctors and none but one has had any idea on what has happened or how to help. He say that by releasing the ligaments this has caused my feet to collapes, kind of like cutting the string on a bow. This has put a lot of stress the joints from the middle toward the back of my feet and has caused a lot of imflamation and pain. He gave me a shot of cortizone that helped a little, but caused my ankle to become very painful and I'm not sure if I want him doing that again. He did say the he did have someone else just like me and just before he was bout to fuse the poor guys joints, he found the right spot to hit with the cortizone and the guy got better and that it may take awhile for him to find the right spot on me. I'm not quite so sure since I've heard it all before.
I've been out of work for over a year because of this and I'm desperate. Has anyone else been through or seen anything like this, I really could use your help here and I would love to hear from you.
