10 month update

Published by buddy670 at 2:37 pm under Uncategorized

Not much different from my last post. Surgically repaired side feels phenomenal and gives me no problems, still battling tendinitis in my so called good leg; although, not on a daily basis, the tendinitis flares up when pushed, so again , I feel like I’m ready to regain my life and move ahead but I keep getting reminded I’m not done yet…..this week I may try and see my surgeon and take some aggresive measures to get rid of this tendinitis , I constantly live in fear that every bout of tendinitis is getting me closer to a complete rupture and everyone on here knows that is not something anyone would wish on their worst enemy. Still not ru Ning or jumping , although I feel I could if it wasn’t for the tendinitis, so I can’t blame that on the surgery.

    Good luck with that tendinitis, Buddy670. if I’ve understood Bonnie and Metonia and Stuart, you might be able to deal with it via Physical Therapy, and have the tendon repair itself…
    Good luck! And Thanks for posting!……… Manny

    Hey Budd670, I don’t know if you’ve tried this but I read a bunch of studies that show positive results in curing achilles tendinitis by following an eccentric calf strengthening program that lasts 12 weeks. If you check my blog there’s a post labelled ‘research …’ and I copied a few urls of the studies at the bottom of that post, but there are more so you can also just google it. Good luck, I hope you come right!

    Buddy - Beanie is correct and it does work. My partner started with it the other day while running and it has already gone after starting these exercises. Please do not be talked into cortisone injections. The other thing you could try is custom made orthotics which replace the inner sole of your shoe and may correct your leg posture. I have also personally tried radial shock wave therapy with excellent results. This was combined with new orthotics so it may have been the result from both. You can do all of these things or just one and see if there is an improvement.

    You guys are spot on. I started the 12 week program of eccentric heel drops and have started back with PT. the tendinitis is subsiding quickly. I started the 12 week program about 3 weeks ago, in addition to easing off the things that were bothering me, i.e…incline treadmill workouts. This week I started back PT; although this time we are just working on easing the tendinitis right now and in a few weeks I think we will try and make that 1 year anniversary a first jog since the surgery.

    Thanks for the responses
