Something popped after Topaz Plantar Fasciitis surgery on right foot
I had Topaz surgery on my right foot for my Plantar Fasciitis pain almost 3 weeks ago. Everything has been going great on the healing.
My doctor was impressed and said this up coming week I could take my boot off. Well my girls are in band and had to compete so I went.
I thought I would try with out the boot. I had went to a football game the night before with out it and done fine. I was going up the bleachers and something popped in my right heel.
I did have some pain after that and it has some swelling. I am due to go back to work in two days.
How's life back at work?
Let's hope that that 'pop' was just new scar tissue failing and tearing apart. That -could- be not so bad.
Worst case scenario, the fascia that was cut suddenly ripped apart. So you had a strong structure, the surgeon sliced into it, and then it gave way under all the extra tension.
Granted, from your description, it's hard to tell.
It could have just been your ankle adjusting. It could have been a tendon/ligament separating to some degree or other.
The Tendonitis you were experiencing, in the form of Plantar Fasciitis, really consists of TIGHTNESS of muscle and connective tissue from your knees to your toes.
Tell me some more about the specifics of your pain/symptoms/surgery/recovery/new pop, etc.
