... om my PTT being sheared in a car accident a few years ago. A simple repair was first done as I had other injuries, but it didn't stay together so I had a double calcaneal osteotomy, FDL transfer, and bone graft this fall. Recovery takes a long time. ... (7 replies)
... WB. I have my next followup appointment on april 17th at which point I hope, HOPE, fingers crossed, to go into the boot and begin PWB. I'm starting to feel the recovery time looming over and out ahead of me. Thanks for letting us know that there's life after flat foot surgery. ... (10 replies)

... I'm a 64 yo male with a worn out left foot. Five days ago I had peroneal tendon repair including fusing the two together, deepening of the bone groove, and calcaneal osteotomy. The doctor commented that the tendons were, "a royal mess", but he said the surgery went well. ... (40 replies)

... n the outside of my ankle and a tear in the ptt. My ligaments healed but the tendon did not and I began the pronate and lost the arch in my foot resulting in the calcaneal osteotomy and ptt tendon repair. ... (20 replies)
... I just found out that my surgery is gonna be on April 9th :) Maybe I'll have to ask my ankle surgeon about that. Thanks, I hope your recovery is going well :) (15 replies)
... I think you are right about recovery being faster if you had a PTT repair instead of the FDL transfer (though I am certainly no doctor). I think it has to do with "teaching" an existing tendon an entirely new function. In addition, there are additional surgically altered sites that have to heal and rehab in the case of a transfer, whereas, with the repair, the surgeon is... (20 replies)
... Thanks for everyone's responses. First, I want to say that I think generally you have to think positive about the recovery (as much as possible) because even when you reach the PT part, you'll still have the negative stuff in your head if that's all you've been thinking about. I'm guilty of that a little bit because I'm in my 3rd week of PT and I definitely feel like I'm... (20 replies)
... Hi All, I am only just approaching the two week post op mark. I go for my hard cast on the 11th. I agree with everyone, though, that even though I'm still in pretty intense "pain control" mode, the anxiety that I am struggling with has far more to do with the length of time to recover. I've never been a "sportswoman" like you, Guy, but I'm the technical director at a... (20 replies)

... From what I understand, the bone healing isn't the long part of PTTD surgery recovery...It's the FDL transfer. It takes a long time to strengthen the transferred tendon. I recovered from a broken back quicker than I have this surgery! (20 replies)
... Mainly I'm curious if the recovery for both these surgeries pretty similar, then I wonder how much better care the athletes receive to rehabilitate so quickly. ... (20 replies)
... Is there anyone at your surgeon's office you could talk to about your activity level and use of pain meds? It doesn't sound like you are taking excessive amounts of Percocet, but only your personal doctor could counsel you on this. In general, I think your pain level will be directly connected to how much your foot is down, how much activity you do, and how much icing and... (6 replies)

... Amen to the mental part! I'm only 4 weeks out, and although the physical recovery is challenging the mental, emotional and spiritual recovery has so far been more difficult for me. Anxiety about the end result, boredom and a sore tush fill my days right now. ... (20 replies)
