I think I pulled a tendon in my foot while jumping off the fence, how long should that take to heal?
Forever: I am not trying to be smart when i say forever. When you tear or rupture a tendon it is in the remodeling or repairing phase for your entire life. Once you get past the inflammatory phase which lasts about 3 days, then you go to the proliferative phase. This can last about 6-12 weeks. After that the remodeling phase which never ends. Much depends on age, general health and activity levels. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I sprained my ankle 2 mos. ago and there is still slight pain a little swelling in the Achilles Tendon. Any guesses how much longer it'll take to heal?
Not healed...: As ankle sprains can come in varying degrees of severity, from very mild to very extreme, it is hard to tell just how long it will take you ankle to totally heel.

This change could be secondary to the unresolved ankle injury. ...Read more
Partial tendon tear or stress fracture in my ankle area on both legs. What can I do to heal it? How long usually does it take?

I tore a tendon/ muscle on my left foot. Had gone for treatments. Foot still feels tender when I stand or walk. How long before foot heals.
Depends: How long it takes a tendon/muscle injury (sprain, strain, etc.,) to heal depends on how serious the injury is. Since you have needed therapy, then the injury is not a minor one. It is also more noticeable because the injury occurred on your foot, which you have to use to walk. (An injured little finger, is easier to deal with, since you don't have to use it as often). Your Doc can tell you best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
