Re: Did I ruin my ankle microfracture surgery ???
Sorry to hear about both of your situations, but be optimistic. Definitely inform your doctor about the situation, but with the changes in medical care over the past few decades, I'd guess you're not in as bad a predicament as you might be worried about. Again, be sure to talk to your physician, but don't scare yourselves too badly in the meantime.
I had a subtalar arthrodesis 19 years ago, and I was told no weight bearing whatsoever. I had an appt today, with a foot/ankle specialist. He ran down the procedures that I need, along with the use of an external fixation but said I could very well be weight bearing the day after surgery. I'm really surprised by that statement, and will be asking others how that sounds to them, but from his statements I'd have to say there have been a lot of changes since my last surgery. Doctors and technology advance in leaps and bounds. one thing I like to remind people of, your body talks to you. Pay attention and listen to it. If it tells you "NO", then obey, and be sure to talk with your physician about it. The posters here and the physicians will give you advice and their personal experiences and that will will help out a lot.
