ankle bone spur
Had ankle ligament reconstruction done 2011 at age 39. After severe sprain age 15. Unstable ankle w/pain and bone spur at front of ankle joint.
After surgery increased pain and enlarging bone spur as it was not addressed at surgery time. Undergone PT, second opinions, cortisone shots,and currently chiropractic tx with ultrasound and stim. Scheduled for arthroscopic on ankle for the bone spur and cleaning out of arthritis around joint. Next step is ankle fusion I am told. Is this a safe route I’m taking now. I sure don’t want fusion at age 43 I’m afraid of more scaring and arthritis.
