"Hi Marie. I wear Brooks Adrenaline.  If you can, go to a shop that specializes in running shoes and get fitted.  I found that was the best way to get the right shoes.  I went to Achilles Running Shop. Good luck!"

Scar 11 weeks after surgery

11 weeks post PF Release

Hi All,

 

I know it's been a while since I've updated....but you know what they say, "no news is good news."

 

I just wanted to let you all know that I am doing great since PF release surgery on April 13th, 2011.  It has been about 11 weeks since I had the procedure.  I'm not going to lie, it was a hard recovery, especially weeks 6-9.   As you may recall, I had been doing really well and my doctor took me out of the black boot, with instructions to start walking…

Kim I hope you are recovering well. I haven't been on the site much so i haven't kept up. However, I have found some relief. I don't want to jinx it, but the last couple of weeks I am starting to feel much better. The only thing I am doing differently is taking supplements including an acai berry juice that I've mentioned before and the difference has been amazing. I think I will have to take it easy for awhile and continue stretching, etc., and plan to check into custom orthodics so keep it from coming back full force, but looks like I've dodged the surgery bullet, at least for now. Keeping my fingers crossed. By the way, the juice is called Mona Vie and it is ridiculously expensive but since I've been drinking it as directed, I've had major relief. I hope I don't have to drink it forever, but it's sure nice to walk again.

I am so confused.My dr said my surgery would take 20 min or so,while he wason the ligament he was going to remove the heel spur too. Crutches for 14 days,no weight bearing and 10 days stitches out.4-6 weeks in surgical shoe...Your surgery sound soooo much worse. Help me make sense!
