Thank you for your reply. An orthopaedic consultant has written in his report that all my problems are related to the previous metatarsal fractures sustained in the accident in 1979. In the accident in 2008 I sustained further metatarsal fractures and a tear injury to the foot which torn the tib tendon and damaged the nerve. I believe that it is this injury which is causing me the severe foot pain I currently suffer with. I am due to see a consultant neurologist in the near future and wanted to know if he would be able to identify if the pain is related to the tendon and nerve damage sustained in 2008.
I want to know if I could suffer with ongoing pain purely related to the tendon and nerve damage please?
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating [smiley face or accept]. But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
Thank you for your reply.
My post tib tendon was torn on the underside of the foot. This was reattached via surgery. I understand that once this tendon has been damaged it can also cause pain. I have also read that damage to this tendon can result in the collapse of the arch in the foot (flat foot) which then increase problems and pain in the underside and hindfoot. Can you confirm if this is the case please?
