I have not had heel spurs jim, but I have had everything else!
I have had surgery on my feet for bunions and had an osteotomy performed with screws put in the bones of my big and little toes. My surgeon did an ultrasound before surgery to make sure that the circulation in my legs and feet were adequate for healing. My feet healed beautifully with no complications. Make sure your doctor checks your circulation and keep your blood sugar in good control.
Good luck. I hear heel spurs HURT!
