Finally had my diagnosis today, after x-rays and MRI’s. I guess my days of competitive figure skating have caught up with me. It looks like my ligaments in the ankle are no more. So the tendons took on the extra work, and by getting hot and stressed ended up getting a split in them. So it looks like surgery.

Ankle surgery in the next 6-8 weeks will repair the torn ligaments and split tendon that I have in my left ankle. It’s got me a little upset, but what am I gonna do? I’d rather they fix it and get me back to running. Until then, it’s “gentle” cycling and swimming. /sigh
