Ruptured Plantar Tendon

Posted by Barko on 1/21/05 at 16:40 (167690)

Last November I ruptured my plantar tendon. I posted with a few questions and you guys were right on the mark. Now I need a little help before I can get back in to see my OS. I went back to work two weeks ago. Did light duty for a few days. Today I was put to work solo and had a problem. After about 4 hrs of standing and walking my foot started to burn in the arch area and tingle a bit, then I started to feel pain and a popping sensation about mid arch area under my foot. I feel the popping now with every step. Now also Im having a little trouble moving my big toe. ( dont know if thats realated or not) Should I stay off it untill Monday or does it just sound like its irratated? I dont want to mess up my recovery so far but I'm getting tired of limping around. Thanks for your help.
