I am hoping for some advice please.
I've had PF for over two years now in my right foot. I got it through running. Over the last two years I have tried everything to cure/ease the pain, smiliar to everyone else. I am now at the point where my consultant surgeon has agreed to release the plantar. This is what I've wanted all along but had to exhaust all other options before invasive surgery, I guess because of potential complications. I have a few questions which I'm hoping someone might be able to help me with please...
- what did you do to prepare yourself for the op? What are the best sites to read up on it? What practical things did you wish you had done but didn't realise it would've helped at the time?
- any tips for after the op? Again perhaps things you may not have thought of yourself until you were in that situation?
- this is just a little aside but I also have pain in my left foot now. My surgeon has applied pressure to the right points and said its not PF just stress. Has this happened to others? I'm completely paranoid that I'm going to get it in my left foot too.
I'm 46 and sometimes when I get out of bed in the morning (straight into my fit flops of course :-)) I feel like an old women. I really need to have to operation and I think the risks will outweigh the benefits.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post, any help would be really appreciated. Unless you've been there yourself, which none of my friends and family have, it's difficult for them to understand.
