Re: Peroneal Tendon Problems after PTTD surgerey

I know, I know - that's one of the diagnosis I had - tendonitis. It just kept going on and on. I was in the boot, brace (which I still have to wear), and the doc gave me a Lidocaine/cortisone shot for diagnosis purposes. It gave me so much relief that he was sure that is where the problem was. It initially was just going to do a debridement of the tendon and sheath and that is when he found the tear. I think, just like the pttd, they have to take certain steps to rule out/confirm what the problem is.
