    Hospital yesterday and now on waiting llist for operation to remove the lump under my left heel, (was hoping to be back to work by the time this might happen)
    Going to try and go for a walk today hoping for at least a couple of miles, painkillers arent doing anything, but need to get blood pumping to feet. The NHS advice is walk until you cant take any more then rest then do again etc to get at least 30 minutes to an hour a day, then after 6 months, new blood vessels might start to grow. To feed muscles etc that need the blood flow.

    That sounds positive. I have read through the thread and I have seen that at times you have wished to avoid putting pressure on yourself. I have had long periods of my life when I have been the same. I avoided working hard for my degree due to post-bullying depression and dropped out and after bereavements, avoiding doing almost any household chores. Ironically the "pressure" from your foot condition may now be prompting you to exercise. I hope you will have a much better 2013, and please do post regularly, however you are feeling and whether you are taking your two steps forward or one step back at the time. :)
