Advice & Tips: My ankle surgery to repair a ligament tear was extensive, including auto-donation from my Achilles tendon and a permanent pin in my ankle. I wore a cast and could not walk on my ankle for 2 months and required about 1 year of physical therapy to recover. I have some scarring and ankle stiffness. None the less, I have much less pain and I am very happy that I had the surgery.
