Ok-- well Plantar Fasciitis is generally a self-limiting problem--In other words even if you did nothing the problem will generally go away on its own eventually, but it sometimes is quite painful and can be very chronic--lasting from weeks to yrs even sometimes--people do often get sharp stabbing pains from this in the ball of the heel --often in the first steps in AM or after sitting and then standing up again. This treatment can include many different things--most importantly are arch supports ( many different kinds), calf stretching and avoidance of barefoot walking--When these measures fail--cortisone injections as well, night splints and even cast immobilization are often effective treatments--
With regards XXXXX XXXXX other problem--It sounds as though you may be dealing with either some type of nerve pain--either in regards XXXXX XXXXX initial problem or possibly secondary to scar formation from surgery or even without scar formation/ nerve entrapment from a process called Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome--also know as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy--The latter of which is essentially a malfunction of the neurovascular system in the region of the surgery --leading to chronic pain, sometimes dyshydrosis ( excess sweating or dry skin), sometimes thin or shiny skin, temperature or color fluctuations. This type of problem can be quite severe and lead to disuse and other problems--Aggressive and early physical therapy and pain management are key. Sometimes other, more advanced forms of treatment are avail--sometimes done by anesthesiologist/ chronic pain management specialists, etc ie regional nerve blocks, and even specific destruction of a nerve to eliminate the pain. So there are options, further treatments out there, and you shouldn't give up just yet.
