Thanks, what if no time limit?

Thanks for the response. I realize hoping to be ready for school is probably not going to happen.

I have been wearing the castboot for 5 weeks and the ankle is not much better, if at all. The swelling is actually worse. With tendons all around the ankle partially torn or frayed, there is more than one area that hurts.

I have a bunion on the same foot which has bothered me for a long time. I have also had gout in that same joint. The bunion pain never goes away.

I have a "Morton's Toe" is it, that the 2nd toe is longer than the big toe on that same foot as well. It aches sometimes and causes me to have to wear one size bigger shoes, this makes my good foot rub on the oversize shoe.

Therefore, the ankle, and foot have several problems. I understand not having things done to both feet at the same time, but doesn't it make sense, if I have the ankle surgery, that I would get the bunion and the toe fixed at the same time.
I will be laid up anyway, and would not want to have to be put out for future surgeries on the toe and bunion. Why be in pain for something they could fix then.

Does this make sense, or am I just having wishful thinking? I know either way it won't be fun. But this isn't fun either. I have limped for a long time.

Thanks again for listening and for your opinion. And, I do have a second opinion with a DPM this week to see what he thinks as well. Deb
