Re: OATS Procedure on right ankle Out patient

Welcome to the boards. I am sorry you haven't gotten any relief from the microfracture tue drilling. When it was offered to me as a solution to my OCD they advised outpatient. I went with drilling in Jan 12. I was under the impression tht it could take up to a year to know it it worked. Outside of the pain, was there any other determining facts that lead you to know it was time for OATS? What was your recovery plan after the drilling? Have you already scheduled your surgery date?
