Update on my ankle

I found out what is wrong with my ankle. I have messed up the nerves in my ankle to the point where my nerves are making my ankle hurt when they shouldn't. I forgot what it is called, but the doctor told me it was rare. I am on three different medications and I have to try to walk on my foot as much as I can because my bones are starting to get thin. The doctor said if I don't use my foot or at least apply some presure to it that I will lose the ablity to walk. I also have a sprain in my foot that has seperated two of my bones. The only way to fix that is by surgery. Fortunately, if I can walk without my foot hurting I won't have to have surgery right away. So, I have desided that it's best to fix one injury at a time. I am going to get my nerves back on track then I will worry about the sprain. At least I now know what is wrong with my ankle!

I am glad that you have figured out what is wrong, although, I am sorry that you are going to have to go through so much to get back to walking good. Good luck to you.

I am too. I wish it was easily fixed and I could be walking now. But I guess this is where patience is a vurtue.
