I posted once before about this problem and didn't get any responses. I decided to go and have a second opinion done on my ankle issue but continued to have troubles.
I have sporadic severe shooting pains on my inside right ankle that radiate up along my calf that will stop about half way to my knee. I have been seeing a PT for about 6 weeks and we have been scrapping and ultra sounding the area 2-3 times a week and there has been little change. In addition each day i do some "flossing" and strengthening type exercises.
The thought is this is an impinged nerve due to the first surgery not healing fully before the next was done to fix the infection. The odd thing I find with this is my pain didn't start until months after the second surgery.
I had a second opinion done as the original dr when I told him said that he has to cut me back open and scope it. I am nervous about this and why i did the second opinion. Second dr recommended PT first.
My questions are how much PT do I give it before I just do the surgery?
I am not fully clear what is surgically done if an impinged nerve and what sort of successes have people had? Will this ever go away completely?
I am saddened by all of this as this was supposed to be such a simple procedure from the start and it is resulting in me being able to do little activities even walking nearly a year later. I have a trip with my wife and young kids the end of August i want to be in shape for as well.
Any thoughts or suggestions I would really appreciate it.
