    I tried that with no luck at all, however someone else on this site has had some success - the one thing as far as i know is that it is unlikely to make it worse. interesting that you describe a significant thickening - my latest surgeon has viewed the MRI and shown me that I have NO thickening and he thinks what has been diagnosed as PF for the last 18 years may not be - that might raise your hopes as if mine wasn't PF then the PRP may have never been any use to start with. Go for it and be patient.

    Hi, I hope you find some relief from the injection. 

    I have suffered with PF in both feet for 3 years now.  I have had insoles, special shoes, 10 injections, some under ultra sound, physio, my calf muscles have both been surgically released which only made a little difference. I am now having shock wave therapy ( got my 10th app this week ) . My surgeon has given up on me saying a PF release isn't a good idea yet I have to pay for my treatment which is costly and I am off work because of it :-(

      Just be careful - 6 weeks will cause a lot of muscle wastage in your foot and legs - this may aggrivate teh injury when you begin walking as the muscles that hold everything together will be weaker - i suggest yo ueither get to a physio or do non-weigh-bearing exercises yourself - slowly and when warm!
