scar tissue

Posted by kay on 12/27/02 at 20:07 (104137)

after my pf and tt surgery in june i now feel a pulling type feeling in my inner arch near the incision when i walk or flex my foot. i know this is scar tissue growing where it doesn't belong and i also have burning pain especially in the ankle area, probably from scar tissue.
my question is, is there anything that can be done about scar tissue besides more surgery?

Surgery is not a good option as more surgery can create more scar tissue.
Do a search on this site as many options exist: ultrasound, massage, triamcinolone acetonide, Wydase.....
