Brostrom Operation - Getting back to sport

Hi all

I had a Brostrom operation (ankle ligament reconstruction) 6 months ago. I have been keen to get back to sport but have been told that I still have to wait another 3 months until I will be able to take part in team sports such as hockey and tennis. The surgeon told me I could get back to running when I like - I have been running for the last week - I am only running 8 minutes out of 25 minutes to try and get back to it slowly but I am having some pain in my ankle and it has swelled slightly. My PT is very sporadic - the next time I see them it will have been 8 weeks since my last appointment and having waited so long already I want to get up and running as soon as possible.

Can anyone tell me (who has had the operation) how long it took them to get back to sport and what their regime is?

Being sporty I am desperate to get back to it but I know I don't want to risk going through this operation ever again!

Thanks for your help

Susie
