Re: ATTN DR VIV -- PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR OPINION

I can not comment specifically with regard to your situation. Certainly patients vary in their response to pain. I do not know you so I can not evaluate your individual situation. Having said that, it certainly is not unusual to have pain for weeks after a surgery. What I tell patients is that slow and steady progress is ok. No progress is not. It sounds like you are improving slowly. You seem to be communicating with your doctor, so that is good. It can take several months for some to feel better in everything after foot surgery.

I hope this helps some.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
