My dad has it. He had to have multiple foot surgeries over about 6 years. Other than surgery and regularly seeing his foot doctor he's just careful not to put too much pressure on it--no running, no long distance walking, stuff like that. Also his doc prescribed a shoe with a brace on it

I do. Was told I had it in Aug. Had to wear a boot but just yesterday got my custom made shoe. Hoping to go back to work this next week!
