Hello Forum.

I'll try to be brief but my history is a little long and should be relevant to my current situation.

April 2011 - ACL Allograft surgery on left knee and cortisone shot in left achiles
May - Dec 2011 - Ultrasound and Radial impact therapy sessions but progressive worsening of achiles inflammation to point where could
not wear a shoe on the left foot.
Dec 2011 - Bone spur removal and Achlies repair surgery on left ankle
March - Aug 2012 - progressive improvements in achiles but awareness of likely ACL graft failure
Aug 2012 - Left knee ACL Allograft surgery to replace failed graft
Aug - current - 1 week after ACL Repair tingling sensation in left achiles. Progressive worsening to burning and serious inflammation.
Cannot wear a shoe again on the left foot.

I'm seeing the surgeon again tomorrow and very worried.

WTF. are these things related somehow? I'm deathly afraid of having another Achiles repair surgery.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance.
