heel pain

Last May I had a laser procedure for a heel spur on my right foot. When we originally discussed this my dr. said the laser would shatter the spur and the fragments would then be absorbed.
I have suffered with acute pain in the foot since the procedure (almost 6 mo.) The doctor now says the lasar is done to the facia (sp) and that this should have diminshed the pain.
I can hardly walk, still can't put my orthodics back in my shoes, and the limping is causing other problems. The last time I went I had a cortisone shot. Still severe pain.
It is painful to walk, it gets worse I go thru the day, and sometimes even sitting a wave of severe pain will go thru the area.
I also take 75 mg Voltaren 2X/day
I just need to have something done but don't really trust this doctor to do it! Any ideas?

A layer of gel combined with a foot cover to help protect metatarsals and toes from friction and pressure. It also ideal for cushioning the ball of foot and provides warmth for people suffering from arthritis or poor circulation to the toes.
