Re: Still pain in ankle over a year after surgery
I'd call your dr. for a follow-up. At a year post-op you should be freeling pretty good. I had Brostrom and a bunch of other repairs done in 2006. By the fall of 2008 I was having to have it done again because all the same issues I had repaired in the first surgery continued to happen. At a year I think your dr. will start to rethink what is going on. Most dr.s do wait a year though before they consider anything unsuccessful.
Brostrom x2, peroneal tendon repair x2, Peroneal subluxation, PTT tendon repair, microfracture x5, OATS, Distraction arthroplasty, ORIF talus & fibula, subtalar fusion, ankle replacement (failed)
