In 2017 I suffered a ruptured and separated achilles in

In 2017 I suffered a ruptured and separated achilles in left leg. Surgically repaired. Six months later had expected right total knee replacement. Recovered Ok- lots of PT. Two months ago I felt pain in my left leg- sometimes severe. One month ago I awoke and could not walk or put any weight on left leg. Went to ER to rule our blook clot. Went to ortho MD. Had Bakers cyst. Got cortisone shot. Have continued to have discomfort but not severe. Today- cannot walk again. Same severe pain that I had one month ago. Not sure what to do next. It almost feels like my achilles pain before surgery. Thank you. Cheryl Sewell

I just completed 6 weeks of physical therapy for a diagnosis of achilles tendon. They worked on reposturing my weight from the balls of my feet to my heels, stretching the tendons with exercises and graston tool. Although I have gained more range of motion in the ankle I continue to have my main symptom of heel pain, especially after sleeping and sitting for more than 30 minutes. They have suggested I see a podiatrist for other options. I still have questions about if this has been helpful treatment, if I should be using orthotics or specific show types, if my S--- sock helps in bed or need a boot, if a podiatrist can help. I have been suffering for 5 months.
