So this is my last weekend skiing for the season as i'm off to have surgery next Friday.
My Anterior Talo-Fibular Ligament (ATFL) is sprained to the point of being useless (I fall over alot when hiking downhill!! ), and my doctor is going to do a scope followed by a "modified Bostrom technique" to shorten and repair the ligament, probably involving an anchor screwed into the bone.
Has anyone here been through this procedure? What's the pain & recovery like??
Also, and this is my biggie..... How was your skiing affected? boot pain? reduced ankle flex?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
