Re: Surgery/debridement/drilling medial talar dome (post surgery)
I'm 3 and half months post op and I am still NOT allowed any impact, so no running, jumping and so on at least until I see my OS again which is at the end of July, but I'm finally walking without a limp.
Your daughter should take it easy and follow the OS's instructions, IF she doesn't and she thinks a bit of jumping won't do any harm, she's wrong and she can do more damage then already is, to make it short, can screw up the surgery and create a more complicated problem.
OCD takes time to heal and have to be VERY patient.
Discomfort was there till about month 3, I still have a bit discomfort at times, but PT helps with dicomfort, remobilizing the ankle and strenghtening it.
I think the volleyball at the end of summer is a bit too optimistic. Towards the end of the year will be more realistic.
I am lucky and I don't have any pain since the surgery, if I overdo walking or stand up too much, then it's hurting and is the ankle's way to say "that's enough, give me a break", so I stop and rest it.
