After four weeks of PT, the doctor wanted me to come in for a checkup. I told him I was concerned about three things that I was not sure were normal:
- That I had constant swelling that made most shoes uncomfortable and even socks.
- I had almost constant numbness in my heel
- I had pain directly on the spot where the tendon ripped and was sewn together. It feels as if its bruised, but more than bruised like hit-with-a-lead-pipe bruised.
He said not to worry about No. 3, that there was scar tissue I needed to break up. This was normal and that I should work through the pain rather than stop an activity.
The doctor felt it unlikely but worried that No. 1 and 2 was a blood clot. Doppler test — an ultrasound looking at the arteries — came back negative.
Not sure what to make of any of this, but there it is.
