IS IT SCAR TISSUE THAT I FEEL?

Posted by Mary on 1/03/01 at 13:44 (035864)

Had EPF surgery 11 weeks ago and doing very well except this is the second time I have felt like there is a lump where the tool that was used for surgery went through my foot during surgery. Is this scar tissue? It's right where the arch and heel meet. Isn't it a tubular shaped thing that is used?

Could be where the plantar fascia was cut and is nowing healing or from th e trochanter instrument that was used for the insertion of the cutting tool.

Time and maybe physical therapy help. Time is the big healer .

What type of physical therapy? Would deep tissue massage therapy help at this point?
