My heel pain was about a 9. It was severe, persistent and would be the worst when I woke up or had to get up from sitting. Walking was okay, but the pain from walking when I first got up started to cause me to limp and throw my back out. Now, I can do everything. The pain is completely gone and my dog, Daisy, doesn’t have to wait on those early morning walks. I was so scared of this surgery and it was really nothing. Dr. Shah was wonderful and my pain is gone.Eileen DiBlasio
