Sorry, haven't been on here in awhile, the never ending ankle injury has been keeping me busy. Getting ready to have another surgery.

I just wanted to check in and see how everyone was doing.

      My first surgery was to repair my broken ankle. Then I developed CRPS in that foot and ankle, now I find out that my ankle never healed. It has been almost 9 months and 2 or orthos. Now they are going to remove hardware, clean up bones, do bone grafts, and lengthen my achilles. Hoping I will be able to walk, but no guarantees.

      I have been told that by several people, including my doctor. I am hoping that this surgery works. I want to walk so badly.

      I am so jealous lol. Check this out, they had me going to PT twice a week. They were pulling and tugging on my foot and ankle, had me trying to walk with a cane.....with broken bones in my ankle. I was so miserable and everyone kept telling me the pain was normal.

    It just seems to me that someone should be accountable ( i.e. Ortho surgeon ) for my ankle not working correctly. He told me it would be three months and I would be back to normal working and doing what I use to do seems like a crime. Maybe I am just venting
