Hi Graeme,

Everything is set for Thursday and the operation is really a simple one from what I understand. All they're going to do is free the nerve, which the doctor believes became compressed during my fracture surgery. This will give my peroneal nerve and the nerve sheath the opportunity to heal on it's own...may or may not work, and it will be several weeks before I know anything. This surgery is only attempted when the problem can be traced to a specific area, and I just happen to be a candidate...This is the least invasive of all the surgeries and it tries to address the nerve function directly. If it doesn't help, then I can consider the surgery like you had somewhere down the line...

I noticed in your post to kippa that you said that you couldn't dorsiflex...since your foot is already at about 90 degrees, I'm assuming that you can't push your foot downward...is that correct? Anyway, I'm happy to hear that you're doing so well, and you've certainly earned a few days in the sun...and don't worry about your scars...my leg is starting to look like a road map...:eek:

I'll let you know how it all went as soon as I can...have to keep your trainers /sneakers in mind as well...are yours just regular sneakers, or are they high tops that come up past the ankle?

Feel better...

Tanya
