    That's a long time to be in pain and so young to. Very debilitating I hope your surgery goes well and you get relief. Stay strong honey one day we will both walk normal. I haven't heard of the procedure your having but sounds like you've got to take the chance. Good luck. Xxjenni

    Hi Mounica. I had that procedure three weeks ago. When is yours scheduled?. I will keep you posted how mine turns out. I had two ligaments repaired and a nylon plate for further stability put in. My ankle got broke doing exercise. Did not know till year later about the torn ligaments. . I did not have much pain unless I tried to walk in heels or unless I stepped on a stone or something. It was just that my ankle was so weak and unstable. You can private message me and we will do this together. I have lots to say about surgery
