Wearing a walking cast.
In a few patients, nonsurgical treatment does not work. Surgery to release the tight tissue becomes necessary.
I had my surgery on July 7th.
This are not images from my actual surgery, but of the procedure that I had done (In-Step Plantar Fasciotomy)
My postoperative orders.
A walker boot will be used from the day of surgery until 6 weeks post-operative. The walker boot is used for all walking. For the 1st 3weeks, it is used day and night. After 3 weeks (when my stitches are removed), it can be removed for showering.
I will be spending the next few weeks catching up on blogging :)
