    I am so sorry to hear this and if this doctor cannot help you please go to another one. I found with my medical issues that so many of them just do not want to try everything they can possible do to try to help you. You need to find the one that does. My doctors are great about getting to the bottom of everything and I trust them with my body because I do go to one of the best university medical systems here and know if they cant help me no one can.

    Re: Not good news on my right ankle

    Hi everyone back from the doctor, here is my update about my right ankle. I got another shot in my foot. He did an ultrasound and saw the big spur. He moves my foot up and down a little bit and saw the spur rubbing the other spur. He felt so bad that he wants me to get a cat scan to see if it's clear to remove thoughts spurs. He also said he wants to see if the 2nd shot will calm the pain down. If it does not he will move the spurs. Alos he said I will need to have my ankle refuse because the first one did not help. I ask him while I am waiting for my boot if I could wear an ankle fracture boot until the other boot comes. He said yes. More update soon.

    Re: Not good news on my right ankle

    I have a bone spur from when I hit the back of my ankle on a big bar that I did not see. It tore my Achilles a tiny bit and they think possibly cracked the back of my bone there too because I have a good sized bone spur there now. They told me they could grind it off if it got too painful but warned me it could grow back because of the damage I did to that part of my ankle. It does not bother me much so I just left it and hope it doesn't grow.

    I am curious what kind of shot do they give to you? Is it for nerve pain or muscle pain? I have nerve pain from breaking my ankle last year and maybe the shot can help me out.

    It was a cortisone shot. Will see what happens. I keep you posted. Its for spur pain.
