I tore my ATFL and CFL ligaments in my ankle back in April this year. I have been having problems since then and had arthroscopy 3 weeks ago. The surgeon didn't repair the torn ligaments, but found thickened tissue in the joint which was causing impingement and restricting my ankle.
He removed this tissue and left it at that.
I know my surgery was only recent but I got cleared to do whatever I feel comfortable doing (running/ jumping/ playing soccer) but right now I still don't feel like I can run. I don't have full range of motion yet, and playing soccer is not an option right now.
In my appointment today I didn't even see the doctor, I saw his PA and found that my peroneal tendons were popping over my lateral malleolus, (not complete subluxion but you can see and feel it popping everytime I move my foot from inversion to eversion and back again.) He went on to say that they would put it in my notes but said nothing more. I talked to my team trainer today and now we've found a problem with my peroneal tendon he seemed concerned that they didn't repair the ligaments, and/ or do anything about my peroneal tendon. Is this something to be worried about? Or would they only fix these if I have repeated problems? I'm worried about getting back into soccer and not feeling comfortable and/ or injuring it again. I have another follow up appointment in a month, but should I make an appointment sooner to talk more about the peroneal tendon or just leave it? I wanted to be back playing before I go back to the doctor but I'm worried I'm going to waste even more time if I wait to see him then.
Sorry for the rant but I'm just confused and frustrated!!
