PTTD

Posted by Dale G. on 1/24/01 at 22:38 (037286)

I have been in a non-removable cast for PTTD since December 15th. My PT ruptured November 22nd. Would 6 weeks in the cast be enough time for the PT to heal? An ultrasound was performed on December 15th showing taring and thinning of the PT. The PT is hard to see with ultrasound equipment. I had another ultrasound done today which shows some improvement. How likely am I to have more problems with the PT after it has healed ? I was originally being treated for PF but I now believe that the problem was PT related all along.

Hello, I just have a question for you.
How did you know your PT ruptured? Did you feel a certain thing? Or was it by tests?
Sorry to bother you, but I am just really interested in this. Thank you.
