I fractured my talus bone 8 years ago - I snapped it coming off a horse! Tore my ligaments surrounding the ankle and it was very swollen. I had 8 weeks in a cast, 8 weeks in a boot and then physio, where I gained about 95% of movement back.
It seemed ok for the first year or so and then gradually it started to swell again every time I walked on it for long periods of time, or did any sport (funny enough horse riding doesn't hurt it). I got the joint lasered and this stopped the swelling for a year or so but not the dull pain.
In the last year the swelling has come back, it hurts to stand on for any length of time, it blows up if I walk too much and I have the most painful shooting pains that seem to come up right through the middle of my ankle. Almost from the sole of the foot (near the heel) right up through.
I got and have my back done regularly and thought I had limited movement in my hips, but turns out it stems from the broken foot - I have very limited 'role' movement. The Osteopath thinks I may have developed side bone.
Has anyone else had any issues like this - what was the outcome?
