Re: Ankle Surgery for heel re-realignment

It sounds as if you are having a flat foot reconstruction. I had a ptt/spring ligament repair, tendon transfer, calcaneal/cotton osteotomy and gastroc recession 18 months ago. The recovery is long and tough but for me, I am so much better than prior to the surgery that it was worth it. I was nwb 8 weeks followed by several weeks in a boot anytime my foot was on the ground. I would not even consider the surgery unless you have two to three opinions and be sure that your surgeon is highly experienced with the proceedures. Good luck
