I will try to explain my best everything; I am on my twenties.
Less than two days after a usual weekly run I started to have pain in my ankle and difficulty to walk. I went skiing for two days with the pain; it was not all smooth but doable. However, it was so hard to walk before and after skiing
I went to the hospital; they tell me it is a tendinitis. And leave me without crutches and a band, it was almost impossible to walk.
I go to see an Orthopedist, who confirm the previous diagnosis and give me crutches.
Orthopedics provides me an ankle air cast.
I walk with my aircast and crutches. And see another Ortho back in my country who tells me to do an MRI
Chrismas break, nothing better.
Nothing on the MRI, French Orthopedist never see something like that and send me to a sport and osteopath doctor.
The previous doctor would advice a scanner with an injection to reveal a cartilage issue (not done).
Foot surgeon said it is due to a chronic anterolateral rotation instability of the right oter spinal joint (no need to de the scanner). Make me leave my air cast with whom I was starting to feel comfortable (almost no pressure with my crutches) and gives me an ankle arthrosis in replacement. Just went for a walk little walk with it, I had to come back entirely with my crutches I am all in pain.
Symptom always the same:
Increase in pain with the walk to the point that I cannot use my ankle (the time span before it arrive increased dramatically from the first week)
Pain located in the front of my ankle. I can move it by myself all around without feeling a thing, same with standing on it.
My question is, should I trust the surgeon who leaves me by myself one month and a half before seeing me again.
If it starts to be better, I should start doing physio. If it gets worse, then he will do an operation. The problem is that it got worse after a day. And the advice stop putting your the fit on the floor when you feel that is not good is hard to follow when you cannot do a hundred meter. However, I was more and more confident to have no cast in my room previously to that.
Do you agree with the diagnosis? What should I do?
Thank you so much, I wish you an happy new year
