... Hello Everyone, First I wish to thank all of the courageous people who have posted and replied to topics concerning posterior tibial tendon dysfunction over the last couple of years.

... Hi! This is my first year at Mankato (started last July) and we're actually all full time now instead of grads so its a little different. Thank you all for your insight and comments - I do feel a little better! I'll try and post after I have the surgery and talk about my progress. Thanks again for all the comments! (7 replies)
... This board is very helpful, but you are right, people don't tend to write about the good stories, it's easier to talk about the stories gone wrong. Once people feel better, they tend to stop coming to the board I've noticed. So you don't get to see a lot of the good stories. ... (7 replies)

... rrow morning. I really appreciate everyone's ideas and stories. Elaine, it sounds like you had major, major procedures done.

... HikerDreams, It so good to hear from you. I don't think you should put any more pressure on your foot than you feel comfortable with. You just got your cast off and your foot will take time to finish healing. You have a boot and an air brace because you can't just walk on your foot alone yet. PWB means partial, and that is something you build up on. I would suggest... (120 replies)
... Good morning Dancing Cat, Thank you for the welcome. It's been very helpful reading all the posts on this site. Everyone has been so willing to tell their stories! And some have been quite funny, others quite frightening. Still, I have enjoyed the information and the tales along the way. I have only been to London once, in 1986, for about a week and loved it. My... (120 replies)

The first thing you need to do is read the "Tactics for coping while non-weight-bearing after foot surgery" thread....amazing! I'd add a link but I don't know if we can. You've got a little time so make use of it by getting prepped and that thread will help big time. I'm not sure about the... (7 replies)
... Would be interested to hear other stories and outcomes! ... (4 replies)
