About 3 years ago I started having troubles with one of my feet. Heel pain mis-diagnosed as plantar fasciitis eventually became stabbing pain in ankle joint and concluded (almost anyhow) with tendon transfer surgery. Tendon transferred from one of my toes to inner ankle. Three years of lost/limited mobility and limited duty at work at times seemed like a never ending journey. The light at the end of the tunnel approaches as I have finally been able to relinquish the 9+ months of crutches and two casts. Walking has seemed much more normal though not completely pain free. The ability to stand for decent periods of time, and walk far enough to no longer need the handicapped placard on a regular basis is a true freedom that at times seemed out of reach.
What good could possibly come from losing true mobility for practically 3 years?
