Do you regret getting ankle surgery? Would you ever consider a immobilization and a cast dependent on the level of injury instead looking back? Getting surgery next week and looking for help if possible from you all please...
I have small fractures in my fibula they say can heal without surgery although the want to operate and Ortho wants to put a plate in to move the displacement shown in the Xray. Surgery is next Friday. Have gotten a second opinion from surgeon friend who also recommends.
Bike riding years ago I cracked my elbow where it swelled up terribly and my shoulder took over a year to heal however all did without surgery.
I have a friend who got ankle surgery and she says she's happy she did it. I'm of course conflicted on surgery especially considering the recovery and complications. That said should I not get the surgery there's a risk of having an unstable ankle and I had non orthoscopic surgery many many years ago where they removed the medial meniscus on my left knee so I already put more weight on my right leg.
?I'm 5'8" and stocky 200 lbs although in good shape.
