Looks like it is healing good. Judi, what did they need to repair there anyway? Was it the achilles tendon? Is there still a lot of pain?
Praying for a speedy healing for you.

It feels a lot better. We’re getting there.

Froggy, it was a bone spur on the Achilles that had to be cut down cause it was putting pressure on the Achilles’ tendon. It’s called haglunds deformaty

Tom, I can’t jog; i’ll get 2 black eyes :lol:

I see the bunny :lol: X laughed at that one :wink:

Yes Ralph, I do see a manatee, he's smiling.

It does look better, but it still must be pia. Can it grow back, anyway to avoid bone spurs....maybe I need to google this.

It looks icckky. Some info on Haglunds - no mention of flip flops. Throw out those pumps and high heels Judi :lol:

Patrick Haglund first named Haglund's deformity in 1927. The condition has been described as idiopathic, meaning it has no apparent cause, although doctors have linked it to several factors.

A person's natural foot structure may sometimes make them more prone to Haglund's deformity.

Doctors have linked some features to Haglund's deformity, including:

A prominent heel bone that slopes outward, making the heel more likely to rub on the backs of shoes.
Feet that roll outward when walking, known as supination.
Tight Achilles tendons, which may put pressure on the heel bone.
High arches, which can force the heel slightly backward during walking and rub the Achilles tendon.
Wearing certain types of shoes may cause Haglund's deformity, or some shoes may aggravate the condition and bring on symptoms such as pain.

Shoes or boots with rigid backs can cause friction that aggravates a foot structure that is prone to Haglund's deformity.

People with the foot types listed above may wish to avoid shoes with rigid backs and ensure their footwear fits properly
The shoes most often linked to Haglund's deformity symptoms include:

ice skates and roller skates
dress shoes, including men's dress shoes, women's dress shoes, and high-heeled pumps
steel-toed work boots
stiff winter boots or rain boots
