Re: 10 months after brostrum - seeing an ankle specialist ....
Joyful, I made the 7 hour (one way) trip from NC to MD to have my surgery done at Mercy. In my opinion they were just the best. I was out of there in under an hour for my first consult. They looked at my ankle, knew immediately what was wrong (I knew already too, but they didn't put me through the wringer), took a few X-rays and scheduled my surgery on the spot. I saw Dr. Myerson but I'm pretty sure everyone in the practice is great. They answered all of my questions that I had there and were super patient when I called with more later on. If you schedule your surgery with them, make sure to get their email address for quicker correspondence.
I really was so happy with my decision to go there. I hope they can help you! Good luck. Keep us posted. I read all through this board a year before my surgery so I am familiar with your story. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
