I am in the same situation - doctor has given me cortisone injections, cortisone (orally), and I've tried different remedies - special socks, etc. Even with my new pairs of backless shoes, sneakers, sandels, etc. - the pain is still bad. I am told that surgery is the only option but was also told that my foot would be in a cast, no weight bearing for awhile, etc., etc. A podiatrist is telling me this, and my primary physician is telling me that a podiatrist is very capable of performing this procedure. Still, I am very leary of all this. Please advise. Thank you.
