Four years ago when I had ankle reconstruction surgery on my right ankle (thanks to a work accident), it triggered arrhythmias which have created a few dramas, as those of you who have followed my journey know.
I have been having problems with my left ankle for three months so I was referred back to my orthopedic surgeon for a review. He sent me for MRI and called me tonight with the results. I have a grade 4 tear in the Peroneal tendon, much too big to heal on its own so surgery is the only option. I need to call his receptionist tomorrow to make an appointment to sit down with him and go through everything, and no doubt I’ll have to do the same with the anesthetist.
Hopefully it’s not as complex as last time as I was in a wheelchair for 3 months (and casts, then a moonboot, then an ankle brace) not allowed to even put my foot on the ground.
Anyway, what will be will be. At least I have some idea what to expect and I know my EP will liaise with the other specialists to make sure I’m well looked after.
Thanks for your ongoing support. I know you understand that what should be routine surgery can be complicated with our issues. 😊😉🤪😟😔
