Peroneal brevis tear

Edited , 2 users are following.

Hey guys,

I had terrible ankle pain out of nowhere a week ago and pain lasted for 3 days. I got a scan done (MRI). Scan has confirmed that there is peroneal brevis tenosynovitis and a longitudinal split with a 2.5cm partial tear. Since then my doctor has advised to rest, elevate and ice. I am booked in to see the specialist next week.

Has anyone had to deal with this before? I have read recovery from surgery is very lengthy.

Thanks guys

    I just had peroneal reconstructive surgery on Tuesday. I am currently in protective splint before going to a hard cast on the 19th. I think if depends on the type of surgery to it. I am no weight bearing for 8 weeks!!! Then transition to walking boot to slowly introduce weight bearing and PT!

      my peroneal brevis tendon flattened and was not aligned with its counterpart. Doc reshaped it and anchored it down where it belongs. There was also some muscle hanging down into the canal. fun times!!
