I have a bone chip (OCD) which will hopefully be removed arthroscopically (scenario 1) but if it can't be reached my tibia will be cut (scenario 2) to open the area further. If the tibia needs to be cut screws will be needed to reconnect the bone. I've been told either way its 6 weeks on crutches/cast but scenario 2 will be more painful.
Ive been looking into proper diet and suppliments (Glucosamine), ice/compression systems (game ready or aircast Cryo/cuff) , lotions creams.
Any special boots or crutches I should be asking about.
I don't want to just wait and leave everything to my doc or PT.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
