T. D. Sharkey replied to Lisa's discussion Success Story
"I was out of the boot in two weeks.  I had a fair amount of lateral pain for the first six months or so, and it was quite intense early on.  Still, my doctor told me to "beat the foot up" and do what I could on it.  So, the…"

T. D. Sharkey replied to Monique's discussion I had PF Release Surgery 4 weeks ago.
"It really does take a good six months to a year before you have fully recovered.  My podiatrist was very confident and had high expectations; which is ultimately why I chose to have him do the surgery.  I had the surgery in late-2011, and…"

"I biked ten miles two weeks after release surgery.  Your mileage may vary, but my doctor had a very aggressive go get'em philosophy which appealed to me. "

T. D. Sharkey replied to Monique's discussion I had PF Release Surgery 4 weeks ago.
"Well, my doctor had me out of stitches, and out of "the boot" two weeks after surgery (an open release procedure in my case.)  So, I left the doctor's office wearing sneakers.  And, frankly, it hurt like hell when I walked…"

T. D. Sharkey replied to Laurie's discussion Removable Boot Cast
"Feeling good while running is not unusual.  That is how my case presented.  It would hurt the most when I had to stand without moving.  I opted for the surgery and it worked out great.  Good luck with your cases."

"Yep, my foot is doing well.  Went backpacking for four days in the Tetons in July, and did a twelve mile hike up Mount Le Conte in the Smokey Mountains this past weekend.  Had surgery in mid-December of 2011, and I figure it is about 95%…"
