    Unhappy atfl surgery advice please

    Hi everyone,
    I am due to have ligament reconstruction (ATFL) on Monday. I am a contractor so dont get paid for being off work. My qustion to anyone who has had a similar surgery is...when will I be able to get back to work (office based) I am hoping to go back the wednesday after surgery??

    My surgeon has told me he will be removing a piece of broken off bone (from my fibula at the distal end) and re-attaching the ligament from this bone using mitek anchors back onto the fibula. I am from the UK so dont know if our surgery techniques differ much from the US.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I cannot find any post on here that talk about this procedure???
