I assume you saw an orthopedic surgeon for this? My first suggestion would be to see a podiatrist, one who specializes in only the feet. There are many different types of treatments for plantar fascitis but I would want to perform a thorough history and physical examination and take xrays to make sure there isn't something else being overlooked.
If you are overweight then weight loss is in order. Stay away from hi impact exercises like running,jogging. Swimming or using a cross trainer is much less traumatice. Stretching exercises, ice, proper shoegear and a custom pair of arch supports should be of benefit.
Some people benefit from physical therapy and/or cortisone injections. Most people do not need surgery for this condition and I would treat my patient for atleast 6 months conservatively before recommending surgical intervention.
I hope this has been helpful for you.

Hi
I have plantar fasciitis myself for a few months now. My podiatrist prescribed me with Custom made orthotics which did not work at all. I understood that treatment efficiency is very individual. If something works for one it will not always work for the other.
I have found Taping very useful. Taping helps to relieve the pain, keeps your foot from getting injured again and helps you get through your daily routine and exercises. There is a good web-page explaining the subject in this informative website-
