... Hi, I am about one month post op from a modified brostrom surgery/bone chip removal/ligament repair. I am in a hard cast, NWB, and for the most part doing well.

Brostrom surgery

... The shoe thing is kind of weird. My incision is bigger than yours and it affects shoes more than yours will because I had the tendon repairs (mine was about 4 inches long I think; I can't remember and some of it has faded so much I can only feel it so I am only guessing now!). When I first went into sneakers and a brace at 16 weeks I had to have a lot of padding over the... (3 replies)

... procedures. Once you start therapy of course it matters what you put into it but it's frustrating when you want to be rehabbing and you are sitting in bed. The Brostrom relies on scarring to heal and so they don't want you moving it until the amount of scarring you dr wants is present. ... (6 replies)
