Re: OATS Procedure on right ankle Out patient

Sorry to hear the drilling didn't work. I too knew fairly quickly mine didn't work and 8 months later had OATS done.

I was in the hospital for 3 days after my surgery and thank goodness I was, the pain was pretty bad BUT have to say I was down for outpatient as well too, which they later explained is done for insurance reasons. Don't worry, they won't let you go before you are able to.

Good luck!
