Should I seek a second opinion for peroneal tendonitis, possible tear?
I was diagnosed with peroneal tendonitis a few months ago. This is following an impact injury two years previously that has inhibited me from fully returning to my active lifestyle, at a level enjoyed before the accident. I had an MRI, which seemed rather inconclusive as far as tears--possible tears on the brevus and/or longus. My podiatrist told me surgery was inevitable. Then she changed tone at the same appointment, and told me to rub Mederma across the scar of injury site, which is virtually nonexistant, for two months, and only come back if I wanted to. I left confused and frustrated that I had invested time and effort into resolving my problem and left with a plecebo answer. Should I be seeking a second opinion? I'm assuming this was my podiatrist's way of "dumping" me for whatever reason.
