I fell at work March 29, 2018. I have been told when I saw the er doctor it's a simple sprain. The pain has gotten worse and worse. I was put in a walking boot and extreme physical therapy for 3 months to no avail. Then I saw a podiatrist after I got an MRI done. He said I'm fine and to pray the pain away. He gave me a discontinued brace with no support in it and a 2 times too small compression stocking. I immediately rolled my ankle again. I saw my second opinion, and his jaw dropped at the brace I was given and told me I'm in a cast immediately. So I had a cast for 2 weeks then back to the walking boot. It still didn't help. He ordered another MRI just to be sure and put me in another cast. I got the cast off the day I got the MRI, and have been a walking boot since. It's been 6 months total. I saw my doctor again for the results. I still have a sprained ankle on my posterior talo-fibular ligament and my tibia-fibular ligament. I also have Achilles tendonitis posterior tibial tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. I also now have a ganglion cyst on the back of my Achilles tendon. They think I actually fractured my tallus bone and my Achilles tendon shrunk so I can't even bed my foot 90 degrees. They want to cut off part of my tallus bone and lengthen my Achilles and get rid of the cyst. Anyone have this kind of surgery before? What am I getting into?
I know that's a long post but I thought I'd give the full story
