: : I had sugery 2 months ago and now I am having sharp pains in my heel. I am still in a cast and on crutches. My podiatrist told me to elevate and put ice behind my knee !! How is this helpful?
: : Thank you
: hi i ruptured my achilles a yr. ago the pain you are having is normal,i had bad pain also
: it is just slow painful recovery, my leg would swell up in my cast everytime i would sit up in a chair, if i didnt have it elavated it would swell up,my doctor gave these steroidal pack to take, you take these pills for like a week, it seemed to help a little bit, my best advice for you is to do everything your doctor says, religously do all of your rehab, and all the exercises they say,i rushed back to fast and i am probably going to need resurgery enjoy the cast now cause the real pain is coming when it comes off, good luck,if you need to talk email me.
