What to expect

Ok here's the 411...I injured my ankle and had surgery, today was my 3 month check up n my dr is concerned I have rsd bc of my chronic pain, swelling, colder foot than the other, discoloration and swelling. I'm getting referred to get a bone scan to confirm. IF I do have rsd what should I expect??
Right ankle lateral ankle stabilization with ankle arthroscopy and debridement, curettage and microfracture of the lateral talar dome lesion. Possible RSD of right ankle
Anxiety and depression

Re: What to expect

I have been diagnosed for 10 yrs. I had no clue at the time, that it was a progressive disease. In fact, after my ankle surgery, therapy, way too many pills, nerve conduction testing and nerve blockers, I thought that it was gone after a few yrs. Not a fact, over time it has progressed drastically and the pain is daily, constant. It can be embarrasing and humiliating at times because I have had to adjust doing every day things "my way". If I knew then what I now know, I. Would have had the stimulator implanted. I took a long time to think about it and lost my insurance during that time. I would suggest to you go thru testing for RA, gout, the physical therapy n even check with ur doc about the lidocaine patch. But don't delay your testing and treatments like I did. It is progressive
