In general, the success rate is high if you have a good surgeon and follow your post-op instructions carefully.

Do you have this problem? Have you spoken to a surgeon yet?
Thank you for reply. Yes I have this problem for eleven months. I have worn a Richie brace for eight months and a night splint for same time. These have helped but I am still very limited with the length of time I can spend on my feet.

No I have not spoken to a surgeon because I cannot find a surgeon who has done a repair.
