Heel Spur

January 24th, 2013 · 7 Comments

Long time no post…because I’ve been feeling good I guess.  Both Achilles seem to be holding (had right operated on in 2009, but also had problems with the other one).  I’m a long distance runner, and continue to try to do long races…but about a month ago began experiencing pain in my left inner heel.  X-Ray revealed a new, large bone spur on the inner left heel….which podiatrist says does not respond well to surgery, so going the orthotics, Nsaids, and gritting teeth route.

Just wondering if any Achilles surgery alumni out there have experienced any problems with bone spurs before/after Achilles surgery?
