Hi Henny: Thanks for inquiring on my updated status. I posted again on 8/20 regarding my gastro tendon lengthening. I had the surgery to put a plate and 5 screws in to hold the calcaneous fx and had both gastroc tendons in my calves lengthened. I am 2 wks out. On crutches for 8 wks yet and long recovery ahead.
However, with regards to my bilateral repair of my posterior tib tendons, I did have specially made orthotics for my shoes which helped greatly. I did not do PT after the first surgery, but did after the second and it helped alot. They did ultrasound heat therapy and exercises. I recommend it. Good Luck and please do not hesitate to keep in touch.
