Ankle Debridement Recovery
8-9 months: An acl revision is seldom as simple as a first time acl reconstruction, so rehab would often be a bit more guarded. However, given good graft fixation, and a well-performed procedure, the expected recovery should be the same. Expect 6-12 weeks for return to daily activities and 8-9 months ideally before return to cutting sports. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Depends on type: The recovery depends on the kind of ligament surgery you had. In general the first month after you are in a boot or cast to allow healing to occur. You will progress to a brace, your dr. May start out with simple home exercises first. Formal physical therapy is typically 1-3 months depending on the progress. Full recovery takes 6-12 months. Don't forget to ice and elevate! ...Read more

Had ankle debridement & modified brostrom 2 mos ago. Have been full weight bearing for 2 wks. I have a limp What causes this? How long will I have it?
Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?
Yes: 7 weeks is not that far out for foot and ankle surgery. Since you had surgery on something that you walk and bear weight on, pain, soreness, and swelling can occur for several months...sometimes even 6 months. Soreness is definitely to be expected at this point. I would say that any remaining sharp pain should begin to improve during the next few weeks. Also, make sure to see your surgeon too. ...Read more
Partial weight bearing for few weeks on ankle that had arthroscopic debridement & modified brostrom. Now full weight, very painful. Normal? How long?
Call your surgeon.: The fact that you have asked this twice here suggests that you really should call your doctor. It's part of their job. ( You may need to back off on your weight bearing either by using your crutches to increase weight bearing more slowly or resting more frequently during the day. ) ...Read more
Depends: It depends on what exactly is planned for your arthroscopy; joint lining clean up, repair of talar dome lesion, ligament repair, etc. Non weight bearing can be anywhere from just a few days to as long as 6 weeks and PT can vary accordingly. You should discuss the surgical plan with your surgeon as he or she is best suited to fully answer this for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If debridement and bone spur removal is done and ankle stiffness isn't resolved is ankle fusion next step? Is it to slow/stop arthritic progression?
Fusion last option: Fusion only if everything else has failed. Other options include steroid injection, cartilage "replacement" injection, arthroscopy (scope), athrodiastasis (a procedure including an external fixator to try to "expand" the ankle joint, physical therapy, ankle joint replacement surgery. Definition of arthritis is inflammation of the joint. Fusion eliminates the joint so it no longer exists. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have FAI Right hip. Arthroscopic surgery is April 6. Today MRI discovered need Left Ankle scope debridement. Can both be done in 1 surgery 2 surgeon?
Probably not: Technically, yes it could be done, but it is probably not a good idea. If you had to have a right hip scope and left ankle scope that required non weight bearing after surgery, you would be pretty close to being bed ridden. Where as if you did one side at a time you could be up with crutches. ...Read more

Got spine surgery done & got a post op infection.Had leg head neck pain debridement done, still has leg pain, reduced hearing no more neck/head pain?
Leg pain post-op: A spine surgery causes scar tissue within the spinal canal. Especially if there is an infection, this scar tissue can be more proliferative. It then encases nerve roots, which get tethered by this scar tissue and causes pain along the nerve root. In some cases the scar can even compress the nerve root not unlike the original cause- a herniated disc! a spinal cord stimulator is best for long term. ...Read more
