I am 7 months post surgery for TPF and only use a stick outdoors as a precautionary measure (bit of a coward at times!) Consultant has signed me off and very pleased with my progress. However, he mentioned I am showing a very slight sign of post traumatic arthritis, but told me not to worry at all, as this can happen. He kindly told me that he had to mention this, but stressed I was not to keep worrying about it, as my progess was excellant and should continue to be. Any thoughts or comments from fellow sufferers would be appreciated.
