Re: lateral ankle stabilization and debridement

Hi Julie , thats some surgery you have endured!
Was this a sports injury?
My injuries were both football related.
My surgeon did tell me that he did a variation of the brostrum - gould technique but he was reluctant to give me the detail on the rest of the surgery even when I asked him whether I had any screws or plates inserted!
Ive been keeping busy with sit ups and press ups and last night when I took the splint off I did a lot of exercises moving the foot up and down.
However I once again was up about 4am with pain and had to hit the tramadol, codeine and paracetamol. Today Im not doing anything but rest , its so frustrating.
Im off work now into my 6th week , are you in the same boat?
Im dying to drive again but the danger is the emergency stop, I wouldnt be confident enough.
Thanks for advice on other posts
best regards
