Brostrom something or other. And gastroc. recession on my calf. Uggh. I sounds like so damn much and I know it all is connected and is what will make my foot function properly again (supposedly). I have no idea how long all this takes in surgery. Mine will be outpatient. Kinda wish it wasn't, just for the first night.
I had my accessory bone removed and that worked. I have a screw in my foot from that. The thing that didn't work from that was that we found out my PTT had too much scar tissue and keep streching back out. I haven't had any of the other stuff your getting done but I'm sure other people on this board. All mine have been outpatient. Its not all that bad. I mean the drive home(I'm about 40 mins away from UMH) wasn't all that fun but the pain managment has always been okay. How far are you from where your getting the surgery done at? If you have any question, ask away. This board is a good place to ask everything and see what has happened with other people surgerys.
