[QUOTE=left foot;5313903]I hope things continue to improve for you and that they won't have to do that.[/QUOTE]

Thanks, left foot!

I don't want another surgery, even though arthroscopic surgery is supposed to be minor and very very tiny puncture wounds/incisions are made. Regardless, I apparently am one of the less than 10% of people who after undergoing surgery develop excess scar tissue. (Most who do, I've been informed by my docs tend to be people who underwent knee or shoulder surgery, and some bunion surgery patients too; ankle surgery patients not that common). So having more surgery to correct a postop complication caused by surgery is probably not the best thing for me.

Hence, I don't want to do any more surgery than I absolutely have to...

Hope your issue will resolve soon too!

Thanks. Some days are better than others. I've noticed a lot of it seems to depend on the weather and how humid it is. I'm hoping I'm just still in that healing after surgery phase, but I get a little more nervous as each month goes by without seeing a whole lot of change. Maybe more is happening than I think. I just walked out into the kitchen barefoot and realized how much more the tendon in my right foot was hurting compared to my surgical left foot. My left foot hurts but in a different sort of way than before surgery, so hopefully it's still just the residual effects of surgery and will clear up over time.
