I am seeing my cortisone obsessed ortho surgeon on Thu to discuss options. If it is still mere tendonitis I will probably wait it out if I can, but if he sees a definite improvement from surgery I may take that option. It is just all the stopping and starting that is driving me crazy...And major tennis withdrawal. I can't even manage a game of table tennis in my games room at the moment...
Forget cortisone, if you want to give something a "shot" (pun intended) get a PRP shot, I would try that before surgery. Have used them (both legs) successfully for a chronic case of Achilles tendonosis
