May 2002 had an operation to remove "PF" however, still extremely sore and tender especially after running - even 20 minutes on a treadmill leads to tenderness or long periods standing. What are the recommendations? Scar Tissue very hard around the area. Consult another Doc?

Cyberwez, it might be that the scar tissue is now causing the pain. You can try taking an long-acting anti-inflammatory like Brexecam® or Tilcotil® for a minimum of two weeks and see what happens. If it doesn’t clear up, the best would be to get a second opinion from a different doctor. Good luck.
