My husband found out today that he needs fusion surgery to repair the lisfranc ligament and surrounding areas. Looking for some advice from folks out there that may have had this done. Tips, things to watch out for, etc.
He fell at work April 6th. They treated it like a sprain. After four weeks of hobbling around on crutches they sent him for a MRI. MRI results came back and they referred him to an ortho. Met with ortho, got a boot, compression sock and an ankle brace. Went back a week later and ortho sent him for a CT Scan. Week later got results and were referred to a surgeon. Surgeon now says that injury is too bad to perform a normal "plates and screws/pins" type of surgery he needs fusion surgery.
Tomorrow will be 7 weeks.
They are hoping to operate next week.
