I have a torn tendon (diagnosed by ultrasound) and a large lipoma
pressing on it (outside ankle area too). In addition to that, I have a strain (which keep swelling) of the ligament on the front of same ankle bone. Cannot wrap the ankle for the strain because of that lipoma on the underside of the same ankle bone.
I cannot wear a closed shoe or socks; fortunately it's summer now.
I'll do everything I can to avoid surgery.
