Re: 10 months after brostrum - seeing an ankle specialist ....

Hi Joy, I had a brostrom and ligament rpr about 8 yrs ago. The ankle had sustained numerous sprains and injuries over a long period of time. Surgery was successful, but ankle has rolled and sprained since. Got to the point that it was basically providing no stability, painful swelling, and was limiting my mobility and quality of life. Injured again in Oct, saw my ortho, (foot/ankle specialist) and had MRI. Recommendation was Chrisman-Snook ankle reconstruction. That was done Dec 11th and I'm progressing well with my recovery.
The new dr will prob order a new MRI, results should return quickly. When I reinsured my ankle in Oct, my dr put me in a short boot, with air chambers, and although e all hate the dreaded "boots", it did provide relief in the form of support when I walked. I was in the boot until surgery. I don't know if some type of support (brace, boot) would help you.
I know you're so frustrated. Sounds like you've got a good dr on Tues who can get to the bottom of your pain. Look forward to hearing from you. Take care!!
