Re: recovery from severed tendon

Since I can't examine your foot, I am speculating. As atendon heals, a tendon callus will form similar to the way a bone heals. After the inside remodels then gradually the outside "bump" will diminish.

A diagnostic ultrasound or MRI might be helpful to see what is going on.

I always tell my patients even after I have discharged them, if they have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to call the office.

Call your doctor

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
