blood clot after plantar fasciitis release???Posted by Mary D. on 9/30/04 at 02:22 (160731)
10 weeks post op. Had partial release of plantar fasciitis and heel spur removal (endoscopic) Still have severe swelling, and edema after sitting for more than a couple hours. Coloration is poor, red to purplish. Sent for a dopplar untrasound to rule out bloodclot, and an xray to check for heel fracture. Can the results of the ultrasound be trusted? Is there another test I should have? Doc says the foot looks like 3 weeks post op not 10. Getting scared that they misdiagnosed a possible bloodclot.

there are adjacent tests for blood clots but the doppler is a fairly routine way to diagnose this. Wait for your results before you start worrying over what might be.

I agree wait for your testing results. They usually can have the results that same day
