This is very encouraging. I did a google search last night on "ankle
reconstruction". I was specifically looking for reports of surgery
success rates and patient satisfaction. I'm telling you, no way I'm
doing surgery unless there is a really good guarantee. Problem is, both
my ankles are bad. First I sprain one, then the other, back and forth,
on and on. This is getting old. So, if surgery is successful on my
acute ankle first, I'd consider a second surgery some time down the
road. Damn though, I hate this. I hate the thought of another surgery,
never mind two.
thanks for your input. It really helps.
