So I went thru with it & got my ankle replaced. Again, I am 29, I have a full time job in a hospital & also have a 4 year old son. I started physical therapy which helps but the swelling & pain are almost out of control. It's not nessecarily my ankle that hurts. It's all the tendons & muscles around them. My doc says I need to lower my activity level. Well honestly that just isn't an option for me. I don't let anything stand in my way. I went back last Monday & he said the swelling will be there for up to 12 mon. The PT told me that I won't feel back to normal for 12 months. Funny since this is comepletely different from what I was told originally. Also durning the surgery, he had to strecth my achilles tendon & he fractured my bone adding a plate & 3 screws. I'm just aggravated today because I feel like I am doing what I am supposed to to get it back to normal & now I have limitations. I'd LOVE to take up kickboxing. Would this be completely out on a limb trying it?
