I had a heel spur surgery(Calcaneal Surgery) back in March 2006 to which all I had was a heel spur on the back of my heel. I was told that I would be able to walk in 6-8 weeks and after 20 weeks still cannot walk or apply any weight to the foot as it hurts quite a bit. I am not diabetic and the bone is not fusing back together after cutting a wedge of bone out and going in with permanent pins and a plate. Everyone I have talked to says either they had their heel spur shaved off and not had to have a calcaneal osteotomy. I am looking for anyone's help on this topic as I am wondering if they performed the right surgery on my foot(I had a normal foot before this). Frustrated and looking for advice on this issue. Thanks again.:confused:
