Re: 1 week post peroneal transfer update...

I posted a long detailed post that explains it all... If you click my name, and choose posts by me you can find it!

Short story :
Surgery last march was supposed to be just a Brostrom procedure to shorten my ligament and a debridement to clean up my ankle. That part went well... Doc also found an inch long split in my peroneal brevis tendon. The doc sutured it but it didn't heal all the way. He thinks its because tendons don't get as much blood flow...
