Bony structure under medial malleolus bilaterally, no pain w/ compression, tibial nerve is palpable, mild flat foot.Could it be misaligned calcaneus?
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

See a Sports Orthopedic surgeon who can give you a correct diagnosis based on the MRI and a good exam. Even if it is torn, pain is uncommon with running after 3 months. There may be more going on. ...Read more

Technically, with the right transducer and a trained operator, ultrasound may be able to see these structures pretty well, but it is likely to miss anything but major abnormalities. Mri is the best test to evaluate the cartilage and menisci. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
