tarsal tunnel

Posted by Christine D on 4/16/03 at 08:41 (116270)

In Feb/2003 I fell fractured by ankle and had a Lis Franc sprain the doctor had me in a cast for 7 weeks not I'm in a air cast now. I have numbness, tingling & cramping not to much pain but I haven't walked yet. I had a EMG, to test the nerves the doctor said I have tarsal tunnel, the doctor wants me to start walking on my foot but I'm afraid it will do more damage to the tarsal tunnel any advice
