Broken bone

0

I have a cracked bone in my foot( the bone that runs along the second toe up) as well as several torn ligaments in the bottom of my foot.
I was misdiagnosed at first so I was just recently put into an aircast.Can you tell me in your opinion if being in an aircast is enough to heal a cracked bone and ligaments. My podiatrist is saying healing time is 3 weeks….as happy as that made me it does seem rather quick….your opinion would be greatly appreciated

teninitus-left knee

0

I recently ran a marathon and think I have tendinitus in my left knee. During and after the run I experienced severe pain just below my knee cap. It feels okay until I start running or do intense physical activity. Do you have any ideas for physical therapy I can do to build up the muscles around my knee? Thanks! Ann

Calcaneous Fracture (and several others)

0

Hello,
On 2/12 I was in a car accident and broke my right foot. The CT scan showed seven fractures, including in my heel. I did not need surgery–the orthopedic surgeon told me that the bones are in alignment.
I was in a splint for 2 weeks, cast for 4 weeks, and have now just gotten an orthopedic boot. The doctor said that I have to wear it for 2 weeks, except for bathing and sleeping. After 2 weeks, he said I can start wearing normal shoes.
It’s still really hard for me to walk. I use crutches for balance and to support some of my weight while walking with the boot. It’s been 2 days since I’ve gotten it. My foot is still REALLY swollen, especially around my ankle. The doctor said I have good range of motion. But my foot feels REALLY stiff. Are there any exercises that I should do to help?

screw displacement

0

I undergo bunionectomy with 2 screw fixation, after a week the x-ray showed that one of the screws “came back” on a lateral view – 3 mm , the plantar view is OK. Does it mean that I should remove this screw in a future? Could it remain asymptomatic?

Seperated A-C joint: What therapy?

0

I’ve seperated my right A-C joint three times. The first included a complete break of the clavicle. The second was minor, and the most recent has failed to re-attach. My clavicle floats under my skin at the joint. I can push it into place but it pops back when I release. Is there any method to help this heal? I’m athletic so I’d rather not get the operation to remove the end. As of now however, it feels as if it’s completely detached anyhow. What exercises can I do, if any, to help it reattach? Thank you.

LUMP ON METATARSAL

0

I too, have a lump on my metatarsal (third)bottom of foot – it feels like a cyst – yet could it be a neuroma being I had neuroma surgery about 6 years ago in both interspaces on each side of middle toe in that foot?
I noticed another reader (Dawn) had a lump on hers too. Thanks.

Austin Bunionectomy

I am 5 weeks post op and my foot is doing great.
I am wearing my own shoe and have no pain.
However, the doctor cut the tendon in my second toe to keep it from gravitating towards my big toe, but it seems like it is going that way anyway.
My left foot has a bunion also but the second toe goes towards my big toe also.
Is there anything that can be done to clip that tendon in my right foot again and/or do the left one so that toe straightens out?

neuroma?

0

In the past year I have underwent two surgeries one for a bunion, then 4 months later I had a neuroma removed.
It has been over three months and I am still experiencing much pain and discomfort.
My foot feels very sore and fatigued and I can not stand for long periods of time.
I also have ankle pain.
My leg getting thinner than the leg without surgery.
I have had PT and many injections.
I am trying to be patient but wondering if my foot will ever return to normal.
What should I expect at this point in time?
Has anyone had similar experience?

I have not been able to reach up or behind my back. I went to the Dr. and got an xray and they called today to say I had a rotator cuff imparement. What kind of treatment can I do on my own to heal this? I’m a 52yr. old female. I excercise every day and am an active person. Thanks.
