I went to see an orthopaedic surgeon yesterday and got some more information to why I am still suffering 10 years on, I had x-rays done but didn't get given the result.

He tested my muscles and movement and said that I had a lost ankle movement and it was stuff and that my muscles are significantly weaker to my left side and he said that's because when I was Injured the big muscle that connect to your shin was doing all the work, therefore my other muscle on my ankle could health but because of reoccurring pain etc that big muscle is getting used all the time rather than the muscle on the side of my ankle hence why I am getting pain in ankle and radiating into shin etc.

Also I said about balance and the fact my foot is turned outwards, he said I have really bad balance and looked at my gait where he found that I have something where my heels turn inwards even when my legs are straight which causes me to walk slightly on the side of my feet meaning I could accidentally roll my ankles and break a bone if not treated.

Treatment is physiotherapy extensive and long time to help my muscle to become stronger and work letting of some of the pressure of the big muscle, and maybe have implants to help with the heel issue, also I have to have a scan to see if any ligament of tissue damage or injury, good to know it maybe resolved, as his words was I didn't want to end up like Andy Murray with splints on my legs.
