Hello everyone.
I guess I am just feeling blah blah and needed some support from everyone on here that knows what I am going through.
In September 2007 I had my first ankle surgery-an OATS procedure. I did my physical therapy...stayed off my feet....five months.....and was still having a lot of pain.
When I went back to my dr, he did an x-ray, and said I needed surgery again because my previous surgery didn't take. The bones had compacted and sorta dropped.
So in May of 2008 I had a mosaicplasty and used a donor bone from a cadaver. I am now 5 weeks post op....still having swelling and pain. I am off my feet again for five months.
My question is this....has anyone else been through this? My surgeon told me that if this surgery doesn't take, then I have to have my ankle fused togeter. I don't want that either.
and how long till this pain goes away??? I only take pain meds at night to help me get to sleep. I am also wearing my bone stimulator for 8-10 hours per night.
I just feel completely useless here at home.:(
I would appreciate any words of wisdom.
Thanks
