update 2.5 years after OATS
 
Hey guys!

Thought I would give an update 2.5 years after OATS. Still very good. :) I don't think I'll ever be 100%, but 90% is good enough for me. I have moments of foot pain if I go a long distance (over 5 miles), or a lot of uphill and downhill. But really most of my pain comes from the osteotomy site - as if the screws cause my leg to ache sometimes. I do go for little jogs every once in a while and they are fine if I stay on flat soft ground. I basically hike, bike, walk, ski pain-free and that's awesome! My newest activity is trampoline. I used to do gymnastics which now is totally out because it's way too high impact. So I decided to get a trampoline this spring and I love it! My injury was 5 years ago and it feel awesome to jump again. :bouncing::bouncing: It doesn't bother my ankle at all. It actually is making my knee sore if anything. My donor site knee greatly improved after a year but it still gets sore sometimes. It's a kneecap thing ....

So I saw my local OS because of a lump on the arch of my bad foot. I have some weird fibroma but hopefully it's a temporary minimal annoyance. Looking at my OATS results though she was extremely pleased with it. OATS was a hard decision but I'm really glad I did it.

Abby :cool:

Abby,
Thanks for the update. It gives hope to those of us who have just started our OAT's journeys.
