Peroneal Tendon Reconstruction Surgery

Edited , 6 users are following.

I just had peroneal tendon reconstructive surgery Tuesday. So far the pain has been minimal (thanks to nerve block) and the only thing bothering me is the boredom. One recommendation to pass the time was to start a blog to see if anyone else just went through this or has recently. Long road to recovery!!!

    Hi Joshua,

    I had that done also. Not to fun. Yes, bordom set in pretty darn fast! Very long recovery. Some days I can still feel it daily! The nerve block was great until it wore off and then it hurt pretty bad!!

    I got myself a wedge from Amazon to elevate my leg. Loved that. I also got the shower sleeve... life saver!

    I still say to this day that the surgery was the easy part. Wrapped and stitched for 2 weeks, hard cast for 3 weeks and then another one for a couple more. Boot and full wieght bearing.

    They say  six week recovery to 12 but more like forever! lol 
    
    Best of luck to you! ******

      well this doesnt give me hope lol. i was curious if i wore the same cast after splint or if they remove it half way through. my nerve block wore off the second day in middle of the night and i just took a pain med and it went away. ive felt a little discomfort since but not a lot of pain! starting to play a little xbox to pass the time

      Sorry about not giving you hope! LOL Its tough some days when your just walking along and that reminder of pain creeps back in!

      Play x-box!

      Write!

      Start your journal when you were injured. I'm assuming you were injured some who.

      And then go from there.

      Everyone has a story...... 😃

    I had this done August 7th. I did really well. I had more pain before the surgery than after. just get lots of rest so you can heal. I only had a "cast" for the 2 weeks after surgery. then I had it wrapped and non weight baring with a boot. Get a scooter. much easier than crutches.

      I just had the surgery on the 3rd so I am still in the splint till the 19th. Thats my next check up with Doc and I will transition to a cast. He told me 8 weeks of no weight bearing but im not sure if thats from the day of surgery or from when i see him on 19th. I do know that i will be in a walking boot after the cast. I will update you after my next appointment

    Start a journal

    Its cathartic!!!

    Good luck with your recovery

    Its very boring hanging around and worse part is how difficult it is just to go to the bathroom

    Recovering from metal removal surgery. This has been the longest year of my life. I use a Drypro Water proof Vacuum Sealed Half Cast Cover. Not a drop of water gets in. Good Luck!
