Sounds like you are making progress Rog. I feel your pain. I have had foot issues since I was born and over the years it has gotten worse. My current diagnosis is I have Stage 4 PTTD on both feet. Very painful and not much I can do with complete reconstructive foot surgery. Because I have lived with varying amounts of pain for 45+ years I have learned to deal with it better then some that had it come on all at once. I take one day at a time and am as careful as possible taking care of my feet. I have custom shoe orthotics for longer walks, custom calf length rigid foot braces (both feet) that go in my shoes and I also have to wear an inflatable foot to knee brace when the pain really gets bad. Hope you can keep again of the issues.
