swelling of foot at base of toes

In January I saw a podiatrist who said I had tindinitis of the foot and had me wear a stiff shoe for 6 weeks. I also iced several times daily. When I went back the swelling had not gone away and the doctor said I wasn't following directions and got angry. I had been following directions and told him so, to no avail. Seven months after I still have swelling (no pain). Will it ever go away?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
