Dr Z -- help!

Posted by Sheri G. on 7/02/04 at 20:19 (154425)

Dr. Z -- I found the thread with Monica and hoped to ask you some questions:

I had surgery on both heels for Haglund's deformity (2.5 and 3 years ago). The first one (which was significantly worse) has worked out great --

but I've had problems with the second one: I cannot raise up on my toe. After physical therapy didn't solve the problem, I was referred to a physical medicine doctor. He said I may never recover full (or, even, more) function -- something about the way the muscle fibers in my calf are lining up. Can you give me more information, or refer me to some reading material?

Did you have an MRI of the Achilles and other tendons of that route into the foot. There has to be some type of partial tear of a tendon.
Would you go thru surgery for this problem. If not a brace is the another type of treatment option

Thanks -- I haven't had that -- it's been several years since the surgery -- is it too late?
