My doctor said he does not like to do surgery. He is making orthotics for me. I am still waiting for them. I sure hope they work or it is surgery.

Every doctor has his/her own way of doing things. Mine said custom orthotics wouldn't make a difference=and custom orthotics aren't covered by our insurance, unless the patient is diabetic, which I'm not. 

thanks caroline,   i wont be able to go back to work with any kind of cast, they wont let me, i drive school bus for the past 17 years.

Sounds good! And just to stress how important it is to take it easy on the feet and wear your regular shoes and orthotics all the time, once the cast comes off, I even put on my shoes if I need to use the bathroom during the night! That is enough of an incentive not to get up! There is a chance your arch can collapse and you can have nerve damage=but I haven't had any of those. It also helped that my nerve in there wasn't causing issues. I have had a really nearly perfect recuperation, thankfully. If you read my thread (the one that is called :Had an endoscopic plantar fascia release this morning 10/17/2011:) you can read what I have written about it.

I was released from my foot ortho's care yesterday (surgery will be 5 weeks old as of Monday) and he told me to keep doing the stretches = the ones I can do. Some I can't because of my knees, so I will. Driving anywhere with a cast is a big no no!

 

send me a link ok
