17 year old with MAJOR ankle problems

Hi, I am new to this site.. I need some help. He fracutred his ankle in 3 places 3 years ago, he has had 3 surgeries since. We really have no answers as to long term. what should we be doing? He wears a brace every day... no longer does sports, he does not run. Every day he wakes up in pain and it normally just gets worse as the day goes on...
I would like to put some of the finding from his MRI in hopes that someone here can help me/us!!!
osteochondrl lesion involving the medial talar. there is scierotic margin w/ mild adjacent fibrovascular. overlying articular cartilage appears thinned.
area of bone marrow edema involving the posterior medial aspect of the
talus.
There is a small synovial cyst adjacent to the lateral sinus tarsi. measuring 9x8mm.

Any help would be wondeful!!

Re: 17 year old with MAJOR ankle problems

There is an old post written by skatersdad that shares alot of the same problems and also has someone who is about the same age.
The osteocondral legion is also known as a OCD (the D being defect) and alot of them are fixed useing the OATS procedure. There are many threads with these mentioned by people of a variety of ages. It seems the younger the better as far as healing.
Please know that this is an excrushating (not a speller) condition. I had them in both ankles and there were times I wanted to just grab a tool and chop them off. Let him know there is mental support for him on this site if he chooses to post here. Also It is a fixable problem, there is alot of treatments. Look for a thread called - overview of OCD treatments - by livesbystore. This man did an awsome amount of research for everyone interested in reading.
Best wishes. Tell him to hang in there it is fixable! Elevate (above the heart) and ice. He can ice behind the knee and help the whole leg.
