I suppose it would be in order for me report how I am feeling these days after the cortisone injection. Better is the key word. Most of the plantar fasciitis pain is gone and I can say that the hip pain is better. Not gone, but bearable. There is some sharp pain when I first wake and stand up and I have been experiencing that for quite some time; I think it’s an elder thing anyway. The only real pain occurs at the end of the day, especially when I have been enjoying some pool time with the kids and overdo the exercise. I also think that’s to be expected and if I were smart I would just take it easy. For pain, I am still taking ibuprofen and acetaminophen but staying away from the Vicodin for now. I want to save that for the morning of the next scheduled injection. The pain relief drug they injected me with was insufficient for the task last time and I want to be better prepared.

Could it be that I am getting close to getting in some real exercise? I'm afraid to try any real walking; no training! But perhaps if someone helps me get the bicycle down, I could try that?

You've described my own symptoms far more precisely than I can.
And thanks for visiting my blog. It's nice to find another political soul-mate.
