My name is Beth, I happened upon this site in search of others that may have gone through the same surgery or have been feeling the same kind of pain. I am 10 days post op from my peroneal tendon repair. I injured myself at work back in late September 2018 and mistook my pain for a sprain. I continued working and hiking, my favorite past time even though I was in pretty severe pain. I figured it would eventually go away. Unfortunately after seeing an surgeon I was told that I would most definitely need surgery. After surgery I was given a nerve block that kept me comfortable for about a day and a half, when it wore off I was in tremendous pain but feel much better the last couple of days. I'm still on pain killers but I am taking them a lot less now. I find my pain now is more pinching, tingling. I have a lot of pain in my Achilles tendon which is strange but never having surgery before it's really hard to say what is normal and what is not. I am currently in a boot and have my follow up appointment on the 9th, I was told my stitches would be taken out then. I have yet to see my incision, my Dr. told me not to take my bandages off till my follow up. The hard part is I want to see my incision in private because I know that I will be emotional seeing it the first time. I move my toes a lot and keep my foot elevated and iced right now. My first PT is scheduled for the 14th which is supposed to be very minimal to start. So if you are going through this adventure in life or have had the same kind of surgery in the past, I welcome your input. Would be nice to find someone to talk to that understands.
