Re: Extensor Digitorum Longus Tendon
Oh, my, you have had quite a time!
Okay, my mother had surgery to repair the extensor tendon of her big toe. She was non-weightbearing for 3 weeks afterward, and had some trouble walking for a couple months after that.
I'm a little confused by the diagnosis, though. There are 5 of these tendons, one for each toe. Generally if they are torn, the result is a floopy, malfunctioning toe. I suppose it might be a partial tear.
We'll see what the MRI shows.
