Re: peroneal tendon surgery and recovery time
Wow - this is exactly what I have - a completely ruptured peroneal brevis tendon. I'm essentially functional now. I'm re-introducing running, and I can ski, dance, walk, and bike. I don't feel comfortable hiking or doing field sports yet.
I'm supposed to have surgery in early March (in 3 weeks). He says he'll fuse the two peroneal tendons, and do a Brostron procedure to improve ankle stability, so I don't sprain it again and cause more problems. I'm super nevous. Especially because I'm mostly functional and pain-free now, so it seems stupid to go get surgery.
Are you guys happy that you got the surgeries you did? I'm trying to think of it as being a good long-term solution.
