Good luck Dave, at least you know whats the problem is now.
Is the injection fast acting so you can get back to walking quite soon afterwards ?

Thanks Les. Well in answer to your question - I hope so, however Ive just heard from a guy who had the same, and it took him 18 months post injection to recover fully. That tells me that the injection didn't work in his case, and he most likely just went through the 2 year self limiting period. That makes me wonder whether the injection is worth it, or to simply wait the remainder of the 2 year.
Dave.

Dave,
I do hope the injection works,
for someone like you I know it will be hard not to be out and active.
by the way I have stopped the cider vinegar and having the glass of hot water with honey mornings and a glass of cider at lunch.
still seems to be working.
will hope for the best for you

Driving back from our 10 day tour of Wales (in the car) today and my whole foot in bad pain whilst on the pedal, most of the way.
Now awaiting my orthotics and a foot splint, but to be honest I have no confidence that they will make any difference and so I am going to try this week, working every day without the addition of heel cups or the orthotics i already have.
I have a review in 3 months time and if no better will be given a course of Shock Wave.
However I am itching to have a go at another LDP and may well just go and have a do.
Dave.

Still no sign of orthotics etc. Needing to get something done but with no distance walking confidence, I have placed an order for a new mountain bike, so hoping to get out and do some multi day stuff carrying tent etc, on that. Looking at C2C that follows the walking route as far as possible (which is no where near at times) or the Pennine Bridleway. Here's hoping!
Dave.
