Hey everyone! I'm new here
A little back story on my problems....
I injured my ankle snowboarding in 2009, after an MRI I was diagnosed with peroneal tendon subluxation.
About a month ago I reinjured my ankle snowboarding again
Everytime I go boarding I get a huge lump on the out side of my leg about 15 cm above my ankle. It swells and hurts alot! I headed to the ER. Xrays came back clean, said it was a high ankle sprain and referred me back to my old surgeon.
So I saw my surgeon and had an MRI.
These were my results:
"High signal in the peronues muscles in the distal leg, more extensive involving the peronues brevis muscle. No muscle atrophy. This may represent denervation signal change or myositis."
" Possible partial tear of the peronues brevis tendon"
Clearly I understand I have a tear. My surgeon said the she thought I was getting compartment syndrome in my leg when I board, that's what she thought the lump was and that's why I was referred to get an MRI. Well after these results she said I should have a nerve study study done on my peroneal nerve in my leg.....so I have that scheduled for a couple weeks out. And i'll need surgery to fix the tear.
Does anyone know about these results? What is denervation? Myositis? What does this mean for snowboarding in the future? Any insight would be helpful! Thanks!
