Anyone here ever have surgery for this? What should I REALLY expect? Doctors always minimize everything, and mine is no different. I have to try orthotics for 6 months, but he doesnt think they will help much. It is so bad that I cannot put my feet on the floor in the mornings. One is sore from the PF, the other from holding all my weight all the time. It's beginning to cause pain in the top of my PF foot, too. I have lots of time to worry about this. Someone please tell me how it was for them and what to plan for, etc.
