Planter Facitis Surgery

I have had planter facitis and tendenitis in my achilles since July 2003. I have done all the conservative treatments in the past year and 10 months: icing, resting, stretching, inserts, cortisone, Anti flamitory medicine, physical therapy, ultrasound, night splints and many more. And still I cannot walk with out pain. So, I have decided to have the surgery in 2 weeks - May 6th. I am worried that I am making the right decision. My Doctor says she has done everything she can. And this is the only thing left to try. I am just soooo ready to be active again. What can I expect? Do you know if most people are able to jog and lead an active life after surgery. Or did they get worse or stay the same. Please let me know what to expect in recovery and my life after surgery.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Super easy strap adjustment for a custom fit with solid ankle support.
