... with that. I do have a desk job, unfortunately I have to get up and down constantly so it won't be good for the swelling apparently. I can take 6months off if I need to and I think I will so that is what I am preparing for. ... (17 replies)
... Hi! So sorry to hear about your injury and subsequent delay of treatment! So frustrating!! JANEWHITE did a great job of explaining your MRI so I won't repeat that. As far as the recovery for this type of surgery.... ... (7 replies)
... I have a lot of questions, because I'm confused by conflicting advice I've received. I was in another state when I rolled my ankle and heard a 'pop'. It was in the middle of the night, and although I knew I'd done something wrong, I was half asleep and went back to bed. ... (31 replies)
... but I could not put my foot down for any length of time for about 6 weeks. It felt like it was going to explode. So be prepared that you will need your foot elevated for weeks. I went to work after 10 days and put my foot up on a chair and that worked. ... (5 replies)

Oct 11, 2015
... Hi, I didn't include scopes but to date there have been three. The last one done right before the second repair. In my mind, I feel my constabulary will in all likliehood medically retire me.

... I have no idea what your dr will say but you do have a lot torn that is stubborn about healing and if it just scars down you are likely to have instability. My ankle was originally injured when I was 15 and some mean girl shoved me in a cross country meet. I fell hard, got up and ran some more and fell again. ... (10 replies)
... and stayed home and STAYED OFF HER FOOT COMPLETELY. After that, it healed in a mere 6 weeks, since it was not being used. To me, this sounds reasonable.
