Ankle distraction :(


I had a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula march 2011 - every bone healed, but my ankle joint is getting worse and worse. And, of course, due to the fact that the bone came out, i also damaged a lot of my tendons (mi toes claw and my achiles tendon is as tight as hell!)

I went to *** to see Dr. Robert Rozbruch, and he suggested an ankle distraction. I AM SO AFRAID!!! I already had external fixators with my first surgery, but this ones look so scary

I JUST WANT TO KNOW if the surgery is worth it. cause i am getting worse every day with the pain and stiffness.

thank you
