Just had the surgery myself on my right ankle. It has been a week and my leg is so broke out in this red rash and itching like crazy. Has this happened to anyone? I keep using benadryl and baby powder to help ease the pain. Am still taking the vicodin at night for the intense pain. Just curious??? Gigi

I just had surgery on my torn peroneal tendon 3 days ago. After the surgery, the surgeon told me that if the tear had extended any more, I probably would have completely ruptured my peroneal tendon. He says that while my tear was pretty bad, my tendon "came together nicely" and that he "thinks he was able to save my tendon." Time will tell. Now I have to be on crutches and non-weight-bearing for 6 weeks. Then, lots of rehab. I think surgery was the right thing for me considering how bad the tear was. Any other runners out there who have had this problem? Thanks!


I had surgery at 23. The surgery was performed to remove the old avulsion fracture of the 5th metatarsal and reattachment of the peroneus brevis tendon. The surgery was performed by an Orthopedic Surgeon. After recovery and physical therapy, I was advised to wait for 6 months to a year before running again which I did. I had a complete recovery with no further pain or discomfort in the area.


Hi, Thank you for your information and website. I had surgery on both my peroneus brevis and longus tendon's in July. Both were in subluxion. The peroneus longus was severed in half and the brevis was split down the middle. My orthopedic said it was one of the worst cases he has treated. Anyway, after being non-weight bearing for 8 weeks, I started walking in a boot for about 4 weeks. The last couple weeks I have just started wearing a shoe again and walking on my own without crutches. I have noticed a large amount of swelling that occurs if I don't have a compression sock on. Any ideas on how long the swelling may last? I am still only riding a stationary bike under the guidance of my PT. (whom I am have been seeing since week 2) I am 42 and have always been very active, running/playing soccer/chasing my kids and working full time. This has been one of the hardest things I think I have ever had to live through. Would love to hear others thoughts and experiences. Not much is really found on the internet regarding long term recovery.
