"Just wanted to post an update.  It's been 8 weeks since I had the PF release procedure.  Just got back from a trip where I did 80 miles of walking in 8 days.  I did have some soreness (in both feet!) which is to be expected for…"

"I think I must have had a different procedure to yourself. I was under general anaesthetic and was signed off work for three weeks, I wasn't allowed to drive for eight weeks and no exercise other than walking for three months. I'm 6-months…"

"Five days post-op and I walked 5 miles all over Mendocino, CA with my family.  I'm finally starting to feel like this thing is finally over for me.  It's a great feeling! Gary"

"Hi Ely, it would be great to hear more about your procedure and recovery.  Did your doctor use an endoscope?  How long after the procedure were you able to walk in a regular shoe without pain?"

"Thanks for asking Ely.  There is more detail in my blog, but in general, fine so far.  I returned to work the day after the procedure and I've been hobbling around in the surgical shoe (not really a boot since there is no upper) on a…"

"Just got back from having the "procedure" done.  They corrected me, it is not surgery :-)  What I had should really just be called a Plantar Fascia Release Procedure.  I posted an update on my blog with the details. …"

"Just read your blog, it's great. Iit's scary how similar our experience has been! I too had a good chunk of my PF removed, maybe 2/3 or more. My surgeon said to me after the op 'I've removed the diseased tissue, any pain you feel…"

"I opted for the laser after hearing that it worked for another friend with similar foot problems.  She's a PT assistant as well and uses it on patients for all sorts of injuries and conditions - all have said that they get relief from it.…"

"I'm really glad it worked for you Joan.  I've seen other anecdotal comments where people say it worked for them.  Unfortunately until the science is there to back it up, people like me will remain skeptical.  Unbiased…"

"I've updated my blog with my thoughts as I prepare for surgery.  I will update it after surgery and during the recovery period.  I wish all the best to those of you suffering with this condition!"

"Honestly, Low Laser Therapy works for all types of inflammation. It's the shockwave therapy that you're referring to. That's definitely not the same.  My second doctor wanted to do the shockwave on me and told me he couldn't…"

"Also BTW since it was mentioned, this page cites a study that showed low level laser treatments to be ineffective for PF.  All due respect to Joan, I'm glad you found it helpful.  I just don't think it is for me."
