Re: Looking into pttd surgery
Hi. I had a tendon transfer, gastroc recession and rebuilt spring ligament structure in rt foot almost six months ago. Felt ok at about 4-5 mos, but never had enough relief to feel like I don't need medicine. Now, much, much worse. Left foot started to fail immediately upon crutches. Now both feet are extremely painful. Doc prescribed pt and custom orthotics. Neither help. Had mri and rt foot has two torn tendons and no attachment to tendon anchor. Left only shows fluid. Seeing new specialist in boston mon. Surgeon who operated says this is normal but is failing to treat me. Is this normal to be worse at this point? I can barely care for myself. Very depressed. This has been going on too long. Anyone else looking at a potentially failed surgery?
