Posted by CINDY G on 4/06/02 at 06:38 (078643)

MY BOYFRIEND HAS A LOT OF PAIN IN THE HEEL OF HIS RIGHT FOOT, HE ALREADY HAD SURGERY ON HIS LEFT FOOT. IS THEIR ANYTHING HE CAN DO FOR A ACHILES TENDON BESIDES HAVING SURGERY. THE PAIN IS ON THE SIDE OF HIS FOOT, SOMETIMES IN THE BACK AND ANKLE. HE ALSO HAS ACUTE ARTHRITIS OF HIS HIPS, COULD ALL THIS BE RELATED? MY EMAIL ADDRESS IS (email removed). THANK YOU FOR ANY GUIDANCE.....CINDY GRAY

Yes it could be related. What has he tried already. How long has he had the problem. What kind of surgery did he have on his left foot and why
Ok that being asked.

Some of the treatment for achilles tendonitis. In this case very important to determine the cause the the hip relationship

Physical therapy
Medication
orthosis if function relationship
heel lifts
ICE/HEAT
ESWT
Surgery
