When I had my last surgery last May, my surgeon refused to touch the tendon due to the amount of scar tissue. Said he'd do more harm than good if he did.
I've been getting ketamine infusions for the pain, but they have not been helping at all.
Back in November I had a bizzare accident at home, fractured the talus and possibly tore the repaired atfl ligament and the extensor tendon in the process.
Almost 2 months later I'm still in a lot of pain from those 2 injuries, I find out on Thursday how bad the damage is.
But my concern is the peroneal tendon, not sure which one honestly, but it has a longitudinal split tear in it. It's also encased in scar tissue.
The pain in the upper part of the tendon by the ankle joint is getting worse. It gets difficult to walk when the pain flares up.
I've been trying to research any procedure that could be done to fix this problem. I come up with a tendon graft. That was supposed to have been done during the first surgery, but that surgeon failed to do it.
So replacing the tendon with one that's undamaged I think would work, would probably help decrease the pain I'm in.
