hi all

hi guys, not been on for a while, do still read blogs tho

well i had a scan on the inside of my right ankle as i noticed my foot was turning outward when i walk but my ankle was turning inward.

The scan revealed that i have inflamation around the tendon and that my tendon is in a very bad way :(

im now waiting to see an orthopaedic consultant and may need an opperation to put a sling under the tendon to hold it in place ??

I was going to have it injected but was told if i did it would rupture straight away, please help !! has anyone else had this condition and if so what does it involve, i think i was so relieved not to be having an injection ( after the elbow one) cos it hurt like hell, i didnt really take in what i was being told xx big hugs to you all xx

Hi Ali, I'm so sorry to hear about your ankle that sounds so painful. I'm afraid I've not experienced this issue but just wanted you to know my thoughts are with you & hope you get this sorted. Can you see or even call your rheumy so that they can give you more info?

Big hugs & take let us know how you get on though. Xx


will do and thanks xx


I have this problem and I have just had a pair of trainers made for me (by the hospital) where they have made the sole suitable for my ankle and foot. To try and make the ankle sit in a better line. My toes have also drifted towards the little toe side, leaving me with what looks like bunions but its not its the bones gone all squewiff. I have literally just picked the shoes up yesterday and after wearing them for 1/2 hour my feet felt quite sore but its because Ive only worn flipflops for about 3 years. I can only tell myself that it will get better.

Have your toes gone adrift yet?



no my toes havent gone adrift yet. did they suggest an operation ? i live in flip flops xxx


Lucky you, I hope they never do. They've never suggested any ops for me and I was surprised when they said they could do some trainers for me. Maybe trainers are cheaper than ops. ^haha^. Although I'm happy that I've got trainers as operations might go wrong, would be very painful and I could end up not being able to walk at all. x
