I've had years of on going ankle problems. After seeing a doctor last week I was sent to see a foot and ankle surgon yesterday. He was dismissive at first. Physio and not much else. But sent me for a stress x ray just in case.
When he saw the results he was a different man. No arthritis but he could see 3 cysts in one of the bones in my ankle. Said there was a small chance it was where my bones overlap but really didn't think so.
I have to have an mri to see the size and scale. He thinks I damaged some cartilage when I repeated sprained my ankle. And that's how they happened.
It's either injections into the bone . Or drain then and fill them with something else. Or possible ankle fusion.
I'm in a walking boot to help with the pain of it. Said he can onlybtreat the symptoms now. So no physio to strengthen my ankle until I've had treatment.
But said they must be quite large to see them.so clearly on the x ray .
I don't really know anything about them. Didn't thing cysts could even grow in bones. So I have idea of the implications of it. Or what the likely outcome will be.
Anyone shed some light on it ??
