I had an MRI Friday and just got the results in the mail. I have already been to the Dr once and he told me to get a wedge for my left heel to raise my foot up I have tendonitis on the left side of my ankle. the report reads moderate periarticular subcutaneous edema/inflammation. Extensive bone edema throughout the cuboid consistent with bone contusion or stress reaction edema. No occult fracture, stress fracture, additional contusion, AVN or bone marrow edema syndrome.Peroncus longus mild tendinosis. Mild peroncal tenosynovitis.So do I keep wearing the lift. I do grocery shopping parttime for a grocery company. Can I start doing it again if I wear tennis shoes instead of sandals? I have been using masking tape to hold the lift in place in sandals also. Do I need to go back to the Dr.?Thank you for your time and answer.
