Post OCD Lesion Talus: Micro fracture/Debridement Surgery

Hello, Everyone, this is my first post and I was diagnosed with an OCD lesion back in 2015 and I finally had surgery on 12/12/16 and I had a microfracture and a debridement also I had artificial Cartlidge put in. Anyways last month when my husband and I went to the commissary with his parents to go shopping for groceries. I was walking down an aisle and I didn't notice that there was a water puddle in the middle of the aisle and I almost fell I caught myself and there was no sign put up I know I put my ankle in a position that wasn't right. I called my Dr office on that Monday since when it happened it was the weekend and the clinic wasn't open. I called and the nurse said I should come in and they would order me X-rays and so the time came and I saw the Dr and he said to try the boot for 2-3 weeks and continue physical therapy so I continue physical therapy and make the appointment to see him in another 2-3 weeks. Which I saw him on 3/28 and he explained to me that since I am only 3-4 months out he really didn't think an MRI was a good option he would normally order one 6 months out but he seemed really concerned. So he ordered me one and we will have to analyze it when I see him again on 4/18 and before I left he did mention It was going to be difficult to see the difference between what he fixed and what is my ankle. But he also did mention that the surgery could have failed unfortunately but we would wait to see once we get the MRI results back. also, I will put what the X-Ray reports said on 12/23/16 which was my first check up from surgery and what was on the report on 3/14/17
