Brostrom Procedure

... Everyone's recovery time is different and typically depends on your surgeons preference, amount of damage done, and also your age.

Even though my two surgeries were very different, they... (6 replies)
... I had surgery on my ankle last fall (peroneal tendon repair, debridement, retinaculum repair and brostrom).

A surgeon I went to for second opinion was going to go surgical splint to boot... (6 replies)
Brostrom Procedure
May 20, 2017
... I had a Broström on my right ankle in March 2016. As for putting weight on during the recovery, I think that depends very much on the surgeon.

Then partially weight-bearing for about a week. Then full weight... (6 replies)

The ligament can stretch out over time or you could have done something to retear ligaments. I had bilateral bromstrom failures. I never had bruising or alot of swelling, just pain and instability. My left ankle bromstrom failed due to a traumatic injury and... (2 replies)

... The Brostrom procedure is typically an open ankle surgery, not arthroscopic; but if yours was less invasive maybe it is healing faster? Mine healed "fast" --got out of casts ahead of schedule and have moved faster in PT than anyone thought--but I still was in a cast for 6 weeks and a boot for 2ish. I'm 10 weeks out now and am slowly getting back to some activity, but nothing... (3 replies)
