Flexor Hallucis Longus Tendon Injury...please advise

Hi Everyone,

I had a talonavicular/navicular-cuneiform fusion in December, and ever since I started weight bearing I have had a sharp annoying pain in the ball of my foot. It was tough to completely isolate the pain until recently, since the rest of the foot was so sore from the surgery. I tried custom orthodics, which has if anything made the pain worse. It is now very clear that the pain is sharp and pinching when I try to put full weight on the ball of my foot. I went back to my OS today and she seems to think my flexor hallucis longus tendon (between the sesamoid bones) is inflammed and the tendon sheath needs to be released. I guess the first step is cortisone injections, which may shrink the tendon, but most likely I will need surgery to release/repair the tendon. I am getting a second opinion from a doctor who supposedly is more experienced with this procedure. Does anyone know anything about this problem/procedure/recovery? Please help! Thanks

Ms Tashenko,
Did you ever get this taken care of? What was the outcome?
