Cotton Osteotomy after an Evans Calcaneal ?
I went to the doc complaining of arch pain, heel pain, and ankle pain. X-rays showed that I had a large bone spur in between the talus and tibia in the front of my ankle. I had one surgery to remove the bone spur. 5 months later, I had the Evans Calcaneal with a bone graft and a Gastroc. Recession to correct my arch. During post op my doc saw that the hardware in the Evans was shifting and causing an impingement. I also lost most of the arch that was created. Within 6 months after that i had a hammertoe corrective surgery to correct the 2nd and 3rd digit. Now I am about 2 months out of that surgery and he is suggesting a Cotton Osteotomy and going in and adjusting the hardware from the Evans. Is this normal to have so many surgeries? Or to have a Cotton Osteotomy to correct a previous Osteotomy? All of the surgeries have been performed within a year, how long will it take for me to run again?
