TTS post surgery question on scar tissue

Posted by EKC on 7/01/02 at 10:01 (088860)

I'm ~7 weeks post op. I seem to have a large mass between the
incission and the pointy ankle bone. What is it? Will it go away?
Also, although I can do my ABC's and circles w/the foot, I still cannot
bend the ankle like I used to. I still cannot do wall stretches w/the
foot. Ideas?

Well I never have had scar tissue build up yet (been over a year 7 of june) it took a while and i mean a while before some ( ihave not gotten all and may not get all) of the ankle flexibility back. take it very slow. it takes time.

It feels like a rubber band going across my ankle - from the incision,
up and over the top/front of the ankle. A restricting band.
What about you?

it did and still vaguely does once in awhile. but like i said it takes an incedibly long time to heal from this and be well. i willnot be 100% ever but 95-98 is okay.

Ask your surgeon what it is.

Scar tissue is the enemy of TT surgery, so if it is suspected it needs to be dealed with aggressively.
