Ecstatic is the one word that best describes my satisfaction with the results of my tarsal tunnel surgery. My recovery was unremarkable. Your description about what to expect and what I should do to achieve a positive outcome was very helpful. I felt “good as new” three months after surgery. I feel “better than new” six months after surgery.
I walk long distances, stand on my feet for extended periods and have returned to all previous activities without limitation. The most enjoyable aspect of my recovery was my return to playing tennis. I was playing tennis three times a week just three months after surgery! This is particularly satisfying since it had become very difficult for me play tennis due to pain. What is even more amazing is that six months after surgery, I am playing tennis 4-5+ times a week and never think about my foot! This picture was taken during a recent tennis match.
I'd just like to thank you and extend my appreciation for such a positive experience. I would not hesitate to have surgery on my other foot if ever needed.A.R.
