thanks for the advice and time...it has been a while and I had the MRI and the surgeon said "well you are athletic so I think surgery is the best option" It was very quick and I went along but surgery is still 3 weeks away!
Since the MRI I obviously have ceased all running and have kept up swimming and some light spinning as it causes no discomfort. The problem is for the past almost three weeks I have had NO pain, I occasional feel a little twinge of like pressure right at the lateral malleous but its not pain and its rare. Last week I was shooting hoops with my 13yo at the gym to warm up for a weight training session and before I knew it I was going all out 100% jumping shooting etc with ZERO pain. I did this twice. What this has me thinking is, has the tendon begun to heal? Is it possible on its own? I am a vegan who eats very well and generally heal rapidly and recover from workouts quickly (I know anecdotal)
I misplaced the MRI reading which I will find but it read split tear of peroneal longus and then its specified from where to where...I have linked to an album with images from the MRI, if you have a sec can you look? I am contemplating a second opinion but I need to find someone who works with athletes. http://picasaweb.google.com/thirstygreek/Misc#
