Hello @mareanne. Has there been any progress in your son's ankle/leg? If you don't mind me asking, how long ago did he fall? Sometimes ankle issues take a really long time to heal and to find your ankles "new normal." While I did not break my ankle, I have had my ankle fused because of severe end-stage arthritis that started when I was 10-years-old. The recovery was brutal: it was painful, long, and hard. However, I am now fully recovered and pain free, however, my mobility is severely limited so I cannot run anymore. But, I have spent my entire life adapting to joint issues and have found ways to stay active. There are always ways to adapt, which is hard to see when you are in the thick of the pain and recovery.
