When I was 16 years old, I noticed that I had severe ankle pain in both my right and left ankles. After X rays and an MRI I was diagnosed with Osteochondritis in both of my ankles. I had surgery on both of my ankles (removal of the floating cartilidge in the ankle joint), followed up by months of physiotherapy. I am now 18 years old and the pain in my ankles has gotten worse. I am currently trying to play soccer and stay active, but the pain is becoming overwhelming, even when I am just performing daily tasks and walking around. At my last visit with my surgeon, I was told that there was nothing else they could do and I had to learn to cope with the pain. If anyone knows anybody with the same problem as me or has any tips to offer, that would be greatly appreciated. I feel as though there may be another option out there for me, and I am willing to try anything at this point. Thanks.
