I figured I had nothing to lose by still having 7 months of pain since the first epf surgery, so I saw a specialist, he informed me the first epf had not been done correctly, and scheduled another surgery. Well, I had it yesterday morning and I am here to tell you that today other then the inscision sites I am finally pain free. I got up this morning and walked barefoot for the first time in 6 years. I highly recommend this doctor. Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
