surgery for os trigonum and flexor hallucis release

Hi Everyone-I posted about a week and a half ago about having a ct scan for a possible fracture of the lateral process of the talus. I had an MRI back in August which showed a partial tear of the flexor hallicus. My ankle is still bothering me, so the sports med doc that I was seeing referred me to a surgeon for a surgery consult. I saw him on the 23rd and that was when he ordered the CT scan. The CT scan didn't show much, but it did show that I have a large os trigonum only on my affected ankle, as well as cystic changes of the talus. I saw the sports med doc on Tuesday and was actually able to get me in to see the surgeon again two weeks earlier then I was scheduled for. Boy, the power of a doc. So I see the surgeon on Tuesday and will discuss surgery then. At the last appoitment he talked about releasing the tendon as well as removing the os trigonum and shaving down a spur. Has anyone has simular surgery? Also, what are your thoughts on the cystic changes of the talus. Thanks so much,
