I sprained my ankle 5 months ago when out jogging. I waited to be reffered to phyio and after 3 months have started to receive it. I am alway's going over on my ankle and have spent many days in the house as I can not put weight on it sometimes. I am a dancer and have had to take time off work. The physio has said I need surgery, would anybody recommend it or should I carry on with the physio?View Thread
Hi, That's what I thought about the physiotherapist. I'm going to see a specialist on the 24th of this month. My doctor has gave me tramodol and other painkillers but they don't help with the pain, if anything it is worse now then when I first went over on it as over the last few days I can not put weight on my ankle. How long did your ankle take to heal after surgery and may seem like a daft question but did it hurt?View Thread
