Scar tissue and Walking

Posted by Vanessa G on 5/07/02 at 13:00 (082823)

After an operation for PF about 13 months ago I have had scar tissue form. I have pain but mostly discomfort (like walking on an egg) Does it harm my foot further to take walks.

Vannessa:

No it will not do damage to walk. I probablly would avoid inlcine. If it feels O.K. on flats i would continue to walk and stretch. has the scar tissue been injected post operatively?

What do you mean by injected post operatively?

Hi Vanessa:

After the surgery did they do any injections to help break up scar tissue. That is what is meant post-operatively.

The only injections that I have had are cortizone shots. Nothing else...

As your Doc about using Wydase in the injection to break up scar tissue.
