Re: Painful Popping/Catching of tendons after ankle surgery

I think, since your PT doesn't seem overly concerned, but this is something that is a big deal, you should phone your OS. Ask them what they think, and if it's something that could be a big deal to...

Re: 2nd LEEP needed?

I first want to say I'm sorry you are going through this. But know you are not alone!
This is from my research and my experience...normally after one LEEP, things are "cured". In my experience,...

Re: post op foot reconstruction ?'s

I had a different surgery than you, but my surgeon had me come in at week 2 to remove the splint and put me in a cast. Then week 4 I went back, had stitches out, and a new cast. I accidentally got...

Re: 10 months post kidner procedure

I'm so sorry to hear of your continued problems. Too bad the cortisone didn't last longer. My cortisone lasted just about 3 months. During that time I questioned how well it worked. The last 2 weeks...

Re: I have pain at top of lateral malleolous and nothing showed up on mri for it

Here is my opinion. Don't just do surgery because of the pain. Do it because its functionally needed. My deciding factor to get mine fixed (a second time) was when I couldn't trust it anymore. I...

Re: UPDATE: RESPECT the FOOT; 2.5 weeks post PTTD

The swelling/purple color is pretty normal post surgery when your foot is not elevated. I think mine did it up to 3-4 months post op. The further post op I was the less it happened but it can do it...

Re: Silly question

Re: Surgery foot different color than good foot

Re: question about Brostrom procedure

Re: PWB stage..OUCH..how long will it hurt?
