Hey everyone, thank God I saw these forums!
?I've had ankle problems for past 9 years. First it was ONE partially torn ligament (ATFL) and my surgeon at that time said "your too young for surgery". In those 9 years I had crazy pain..some days were terrible.
?Fast-Forward 9 years, did Private MRI showing
TWO COMPLETE TORN ligaments in my Ankle (ATFL and Calcenao).
?Surgeon recommended surgery as problem got worse! Did the surgery and I am now 8 MONTHS in.
?Unforunately, I am still having lot of pain. When I'm resting i'm fine. When I walk long distances for long periods of time, the pain comes. That time I have to STOP walking or sit down somewhere and rest. This keeps happening back and forth. I'm lucky if I can walk for 1 hour WITHOUT pain.
?My physio is saying 1-2 years of recovery. However, I feel 8 months is long time to still have pain by just walking.
?Any suggestions? Do you really think 12 months in I can walk with no pain?
?I just turned 28 and this is the worse feeling. Thanks for reading
