Since the end of August I have had pain in the heel of my left foot. I thought it was something I could get relief from by visiting my chiropractor and having an adjustment and acupuncture. Well, the pain was getting worse so I went to my family doctor on Friday. He sent me for an x-ray. He told me I have a bone spur in my heel. I now have an appointment in late January to see the orthopedic dr. I am hoping to get worked in earlier if there is a cancellation. The thing is, if I need surgery to remove it, I only have 10 days vacation/sick leave! I don't know how long I would need to stay off of my foot. Another teacher recently had a bone spur removed and some tendons repaired. She was off work for 6 weeks! For now, Ibuprofen and ice packs are getting me through the days and nights.
