I've had a swollen ankle for three months now. Acute tendinitis was the initial diagnosis with an expected 3 week recovery.
Now, 3 months later with no real improvement and After seeing 3 different physiotherapists, I've finally had an ultrasound that shows "chronic" tendinosis in both the peroneal longus and brevis tendons.
Now seeing a sports physician with this information, he has suggested I go for a Plasma-Rich Platelet injection. He said that a cortisone at this "chronic" stage will only mask the pain and not promote the healing due to the scar tissue.
So I'm here to ask if anyone has ever had this treatment before and if it was successful.
i am a student and have to waitress for a living... so I've been out of work for two months now, and as you can imagine they are quite frustrated with me at this point. I'd like to get some idea when I could go back to work. Walking is a must.
The specialist thinks that after 3 weeks of complete rest after the injection, I will be able to go back to work. HMMMMM...
