surgery for my feet coming soon

Monday, April 07, 2014

Soon I will be having surgery on my feet for plantar fasciitis. The pain has gotten steadily worse. Yes I know part of it is weight and that it affects everything. However it is not good to be hurting for almost 2 days either. I contacted the orthopoedist who put my last couple shots in and I am going to get it done and over with. I just can't handle the pain any more. Since having insurance I am seeing a chiropractor for adjustments on my back and my back is doing somewhat better but I will see him again on Wed. morning bright and early.

    Proud of you for making the decision to get rid of the pain! Taking care of yourself is hard to do when you are made to feel guilty for your weight, but look at it this do not take care of yourself by being in pain! While you are recovering you can do chair workouts, and later you can do better workouts because the pain is not getting in the way! And if your doctor tries to give you guilt, stick your tongue out at him! emoticon

    Will be praying all goes well-any foot surgery is difficult as we always have to be on our feet. Good luck.

    I'll be praying for your surgery and a speedy recovery. One of the hardest decisions my husband and I ever had to make was to have bunion surgery for our SEVENTH GRADE daughter. She was in constant pain. She has said many times that it was the best thing she ever did. It's hard to make those decisions at any age.
