I am currently 27 and had ankle surgery in March of this year, I had a screw placed in my medial malleolus to fix a non-union.
I just received a cortisone shot 2 weeks ago to try and relieve some of the pain in my ankle, And it did not help, seems like at times it has gotten worse.
I seen my family doctor yesterday, and he has referred me to a sport surgeon for a second opinion on my ankle. What bothers me the most is, the doctor told me my ankle will probably never be at 100% again and I will have to attack the pain after it happens, likely meaning staying on pain medications for the rest of my life.
Have any of you had the same problem as me, if so, what did you do? Did you look into any other methods to help with your pain or to try fix the problem?
I'm at the point where I almost think it is time to give up on trying to fix my ankle and move on with coming to terms with always being in pain.
Thanks for any help and tricks that may be out there!
