Oy if it's not one thing it's another, yes? I fractured right ankle fibula AGAIN (last time was 4 years ago). BTW, also had small ligament tear in previous fracture. Doc says fracture in "good" place, at end of fibula, but that tip of bone is "broken off " which to me doesn't sound so good.
After 6 weeks in boot/crutches fracture is not healing as expected. Doc says ligaments may be preventing bone from reattaching and mentioned possible ligament surgery (just a "small cut"). Gotta love doc's positive attitude! Have another appt in 3 weeks for x-ray and diagnosis/treatment plan.
Has anybody had a similar injury treated with ligament surgery? What can I expect as far as recovery time? Will I be able to play softball soon? How about stationary bicycle after surgery? At this point if I had the choice between jumping off a bridge and inactivity with more crutches I'd take the former :)
Thanks for listening.
