Re: PTTD 11th Month
I had PTTD surgery in Aug. 07 and wish I had never had it done. I have the same thing, it is like a bone right above the arch aread, real hard and all shoes hit it and it is very painful. The area where the tendon was transfered is still very painful, but not swollen and the scar looks good. I don't think the tendon is functioning correctley because I still can not do a heel lift on the foot, no matter how much I exercise it. My heel hurts constantly and I have severe neuropathy now in my feet. Guess what? The surgeon doesn't even want to see me anymore. He never even took a final x-ray after removing the screws from the top of my foot, since they were backing out and irrating the tendon on the top on my foot. I still have the heel screw, he was suppose to remove that, at the same time but didn't. I am seeing a new podiatrist today, that doesn't know any of my history. I am hoping for a complete exam and new opinion. I fear I have developed tarsal tunnel from too much tissue in the transfer and don't think I can face another surgery. I am at my wits end, so much pain.
