I'm going out of my mind.
It's been 18 months since my right ankle op and 8 months since my left ankle surgery.

Re: Anyone completely clear of foot pain after 2 years?

I must be honest that it'll be 3 years on June 30th since I really noticed something was very very wrong with my right foot and I wish I could say that I'm fine.

Re: Ankle Arthroscopy Questions

You'll be fine Frosh. Synovitis is basically swelling of the synovial membranes on your ankles and to avoid all medical jargon - it bloody hurts!!!
Let us know how surgery goes. Good luck!
