    Unhappy Retrocalcaneal Bursitis/Haglund's Deformity

    I'm a 15 year-old girl and I was diagnosed with retrocalcaneal bursitis in my right foot in October 2009. In December 2009 I had surgery to remove the retrocalcaneal bursa. In surgery they detached my achilles, took out the retrocalcaneal bursa, shaved down a heel spur, and reattached my achilles with a titanium anchor. The surgery and recovery went well. Except in the past month or so I noticed the bump on the back of my heel is still there, although not as large. If I press on it fairly hard, it hurts. It is not as bad as the pain I was going through pre-op, but it is enough to make me worry. I don't know if the other bursa in my heel is inflamed or if I'm developing another heel spur. Take into consideration that I am a competitive dancer and have to wear tight fitting shoes and practice for long hours. I would love and need some insight. Thank you (:
