Flat foot surgeries

Been a while since I've heard from some of you out there who had flat foot reconstructive surgery (ie.. CJaffee). How are all of you doing, did you heal up well. I'm now just slightly a year and 1/2 out from surgery. The surgery site still hurts a bit, esp when I run on it. I had my left foot operated on, and do not plan to do the right side. Just thought I inquire as to how you guys are doing.

Well guys, the surgery is over & God is still GREAT!!! (not that I doubted)..I had it done yesterday & yesterday was quite unremarkable..the full effect of the block lasted for about 7 hrs. & residually for about 12 hrs. The procedure took a bit longer than originally planned (an extra pin =3 total, removal of another bone =3 total & more work on the ligament in line with my big toe)....I was very impressed with the lack of pain post-op yesterday but when I got up this morning....OH MY!....LOL...I SOUNDED LIKE A WAILING CAT! I am very, very stiff & sore but I am sure that this will get increasingly better...THANK GOD FOR THE PAIN MEDS! I have gone ahead and started Motrin in hopes of getting a head start on keeping the swelling down.
Just an FYI passalong--I am scheduled to go back to work tomorrow. I do marketing, audits, and office work for a petroleum company which means I travel to different convenience stores that is owned by my company. I work forGREAT people who agreed to let me continue to work during my recovery. I WAS asked to work 1 of my stores 3rd shift for 2 weeks (they lost an employee)-sounded like a good ideato me as I thought it would be great w/ my foot situation plus I could get alot of my normal work done while still keeping the store going... Well, my 1st night on 3rd shift, 4 hours before my surgery I was ROBBED AT GUNPOINT!!!!!!!...Again God is GREAT! I wasn't hurt & when he fired the gun, it only shattered a window, I think it was more for effect on his part than anything ! Needless to say, I won't be working 3rd while I heal...LOL...I am going back to my regular hours tomorrow & Sunday!...
Thanks again & again for the prayers people, it means so much to know that there are people who still genuinely care about others!....Your advice & sharing of your own experiences made a tremendous difference for me going in to this....I will keep posting (not so lengthy from now on, I promise) & I will certainly continue to keep each of you in my prayers....

Re: Flat foot surgeries

Did your medical insurance plan cover this type of surgery. I'm considering this surgery as well. The doctor is not sure that orthotics is going to help me.
