New Diagnosis: OCD of tibial plafond, HELP!

Hi all,

I am 26 y/o, I had a trimalleolar ankle fracture with subluxation of the talus (dislocation) 1 year ago. This february I had the hardware removed to help relieve constant pain I'd been having. While that did help some, I still was left with constant pain, easily fatigued, achy and very disabling to everyday life. I was diagnosed with post traumatic arthritis (mild) and then recently OCD of the tibial plafond with a enclosed lesion present (3mm I think) and cartilage damage that the joint fluid had breeched and is in the lesion in my tibia. My doc gave me a shot of steroids in my foot and said if in a month it doesnt stabilize and pain returns then he'll perform an arthroscopic procedure to assess the damage and need for repair, possible drilling into the bone.

Anyone at all, please give me some advise, your own stories: good, bad...whatever, whats life like after you've gotten through this mess. I feel overwhelmed and I dont think anyone else really "gets it" except others whove gone through the same ordeal. So all advise is appreciated! Thanks.
