Re: open ankle dislocation
Is your doc a general OS or an ankle specialist? It may be a good point to seek a second opinion. I had some really bad advice after my 3rd op, which meant I stuffed my ankle more... Didn't try cartilage replacement early enough for it to have a good chance of working, and consequently had to have a TAR much earlier than it could possibly have been. (I'm 26). So make sure you are getting good advice, and if they say don't run or something, DON'T, You really don't want to end up here. (but for all of that my replacement is wonderful)
11 weeks does seem a long time to need painkillers.
A bit confused, when you touch the top of your foot with your hand do you feel anything at all??
