Thank you Dr. Z, you were right.Posted by Linda on 3/04/04 at 06:40 (145988)
I told you a month ago that i was diagnosed with arthritis in my knee,and that my feet were still killing me even after having tarsal tunnel release,fascia release,and heel spur excisions. I went to the foot doc last Friday because my left foot was really bad,and the doc did an xray,and said that Yes, i do have arthritis in my foot. He had me get an mri Sunday,and the MRI showed that I have a tear in My Achilles Tendon also. He is putting me in an aircast. Is this how tendon tears are treated? Will it heal on it's own?
Also, I am having an mri done on my right foot also to rule out any other damage.
I am just glad I asked him to check for arthritis after you told me to. At least now I know what my foot pain is from.

If you have a torn achilles tendon . You need to be off your foot and in a hard cast. Walking on the foot can cause a rupture

I was wrong, sorry. I have a torn Posterior Tibial Tendon,but i'm sure I still have to be off it,right?
