The surgery took approximately 45 minutes from the time they put me under. The doctor said everything went as planned and expects a speedy recovery. My Achilles tendon was not detached and the Haglund’s deformity and as much bursitis as he cold get to was removed. They were already installing the cast when I came to, so I did not get a chance to see the damage. I did however get to see he bony enlargement that was removed.
Now comes the most difficult part… the recovery. I have an appointment on May 4 to see my doctor. I’ll keep updates going periodically. Now, it’s time for some pain medication and rest.
