After a 15-minute visit to the orthopedic surgeon, during which he poked and prodded my right arch, he announced that I have a plantar fibroma. It's a benign lump that is not causing me any pain (most of the time) and hasn't grown any in the year since I noticed it, so he said there is nothing we need to do about it at this point. No surgery!!! I'm so glad; I was not looking forward to having to put everything on hold to have foot surgery . . . for the third time in my life. He also said I have good arches, something that surprised me. I have horrible feet, so I assumed my arches were horrible. But apparently not. Praise the Lord!
