I'm 50 year old thin female, 9 weeks post PTTD surgery to repair the tendon. I'm now supposed to be fwb in a sneaker and ankle brace. I can fwb standing still, but my entire foot and outer ankle is too painful when walking to not use a crutch.
Saw the doc yesterday and he doesn't know why the pain is still so intense and said I shouldn't need a crutch at this point. He gave me a 5day course of oral steroids to see if that helps.
My range of motion is good, and foot/ankle doesn't really hurt standing or when doc and PT moves and presses on it.
Anyone else have this issue when walking after surgery recovery?
I can shuffle along, but doc and PT want me to do a normal stride. Normal stride is so painful. I'm worried and depressed. I thought I would be doing so much better by now than I am.
