I am 24 years old and when I was 16 I broke my ankle really bad in soccer. I had pins and plates put in and then 7 months later I had them taken out becuase I broke the pin holding my tibia and fibula to my ankle. I then had a bone gra and then I had a dead nerve taken out. I am still hurting severly and I have lived with this pain and arthritis since I was 18. My ankle is deformned and the inside of my ankle is starting to feel like its going to break in half. The skin is stretched to its max. I need help. I went to a doctor near where I live and he just said "oh it arthritis and do you want a brace." I already have about 10 of them and I do heat therapy on it. Do you think I should go back to my original surgen to see what he thinks?
