18 months ago I broke and dislocated my ankle. Last week I had the 7 pins and plate removed from my fibula and floating bone removed from the medial side of the ankle.
At the same time I had an arthroscope which the surgeon found some flapping cartilage. He has cut this off and has suggested that I need to decide whether to have it sent away to be regenerated and replaced in my ankle. This apparently will reduce my chance of osteo-porosis in the future.
This operation will see me have another 12 months without sport and therefore is a tough decision to make.
I need to gather as much information about this operation as I can and would appreciate any information about it.
