Hello everybody! Hope smbd can help me, because I am almost desperate. I broke my ankle and to be more exact - the talus. It was December, 2015. Then I was immobilized for 4 months! Some doctors said it was so long and that it would be difficult to move my leg, but I listened my doctor and stayed with irons inside my ankle for 4 months.. Now, one year later, I barely touch the ground with this leg, because of the emormous pain I feel. I go to phisiotherapic every day... paid so much money, but the results are not good.

The problem, as I understand, is that because of long immobilasation I got fibrosis, so cannot make full movements. I received a proposal for Arthroscope. Can you help me with experience - will it be for a whole life or only for several months? Or with some other tips for treatment? Thank you

      I do understand that. I was just curious if you injury was similar to mi e. I broke my tibia in 2 places as well as my fibula. Also I dislocated my ankle as well. The sugeon put in a plate and screw's also a pin. Do you have hardware too?

      Yes, I had a screw and pins. I stayed 4 months with them inside. The doctors remove them 9 months ago and I still cannot move my ankle... I got fibrosis. I avdize you not to stay so long time immobilized.
