My ankle is swelling again after a 9 month peroneal tendon surgery. It now swells everyday and is hurting, what else can alleviate my symptoms?
Normal: With peroneal tendon repair, there is most likely suture and/or a graft that was used. It takes a long time for it to absorb or incorporate to your tissues--scar tissue can also cause pain/swelling for a while. I would expect swelling for a year or more. If the pain is very severe, there is always the chance that you have a recurrence (unlikely). Rest and take antinflammatory medication.

Talk to your doctor: This should be discussed with your surgeon.
Regular shoes: After you fully recover from surgery, shoe gear modification is not really necessary. If there is not scarring on the back of the heel, then any shoe would be fine. However, you will need time to fully recover. Remember elite athletes who suffer from this injury often need a long time to recover. Please be patient and take care of yourself and listen to your doctors advice.See 1 more doctor answer

Achilles tendon pain: The achilles tendon is a very slow healing wound due to its poor vascularity. Furthermore the dependency of the leg itself may prolong wound healing due to edema. It is imperative that you follow the instructions of your surgeon and therapist and wear proper compression garments. Pain is not unusual for up to 2 years before becoming stable.See 2 more doctor answers

4 weeks after achillies tendon surgery I feel great but once and a while I get pain pulsing in the tendon. Is that a sign of healing?
Post Achilles Surg: Depends on how long it lasts. If it is short lived, you are probably stretching out the scar tissue, and that is fine. If it lasts for several days, you are over using the weakened tendon and I would analyze your rehab program. Dr rich blake.See 1 more doctor answer
