Haglund's deformity

Posted by June Lamont on 10/12/04 at 13:32 (161344)

It's been four months since having surgery for Haglund's. There seems to be a lot of scar tissue and I can't bear to wear a shoe with a back in it. The pain is worse now than before the operation. What could be done to help?

What does your surgeon say? Have you has physical therapy?

Did you have surgery for Haglunds or or posterior insertional achilles tendinosis? If it was for the achilles tendon then ESWT is an excellent option for your problem

I had surgery for that 3 years ago. You just have to be patient. It took a year before I felt fully healed, but now it's great.
