How long does it take for peroneal tendonitis to heal? I had pretty bad pain, it got better with pt, and now it feels irritated again...

In brief: It can take a while

It will not heal well taking cortisone or nsiads .
You are taking symbicort (budesonide and formoterol). That will stop the tendon from healing and it may actually cause the tendon to rupture once it has been injured. See you doctor about getting off those meds.

In brief: Varies

Unfortunately, there is no real answer to your question as everyone "heals" at a different rate.
You likely need continued treatment if you remain symptomatic.
