Re: help ankle op pending
Hello again roxygirl1,
thanks for yor reply, just thought I would fill you in with the gory details, I am going to have my heel bone cut and realined then have the medial ligament repaired also my surgeon is going to transfer the tendon from my big toe to make a new one to lift the arch of my foot.
that will teach me to watch where I am going, it was all down to a dam kerb stone on a pavement ( sidewalk ) I went to step up and my foot slipped off causing a sprain, went to the ER for x-ray told it was just a sprain and sent home March 2009 got sent for physio X2 didn't help still in pain then given acupuncure x2 in more pain than before,sent for an MRI December 2010 told I had torn the postieror medial ligarment and that I should have a steroid injection in to the ankle under ultasound, doc said when doing it that it was like injecting in to a lump of concrete.
on my next visit I was offerd the same proceedure but I refused, I was then refered over to a consultant in trauma of lower limbs in March this year who quite frankly was not impressed with the two yrs of pain and messing about cuasing me the major problems that I am know facing.
So I am off to get my date next Monday and then the reality will really hit home.
It is good to be able to talk about it, I will keep you posted.
