Customer Question

I slipped on a wet floor in a shop over a year ago. It was a typical fall forward with my foot being forced upwards. Had a burning pain under the sole of my foot in addition to what felt like a bad sprain. I used to be a professional ballet dancer and now still teach for a ballet company. Had ongoing Physio and saw a consultant who scanned plantar fascia. Nothing of note really reported but could not weight bear for 6 weeks. I gradually returned to limited teaching but not been able to return fully to dancing. On-going problem with a joint close to the navicular which seems to partially dislocate. Went back to consultant who was able to recreate the movement I experience in the joint. Had x-rays, ultrasound scan which suggested a Lisfranc injury and an MRI. I have to wait to hear from consultant but have a cd of the MRI. I know I am no expert but it does seem that there is a break and a partial dislocation of a bone-the one that is the joint but one after the big toe joint. I am aware you cannot and should not diagnose based on this information but I am worried and just want to know what are the possible treatment methods if it is a partial dislocation which I have been moving around on for over a year. Is this likely to require surgery as I also have post traumatic stress disorder and the prospect of surgery in itself is terrifying if this involves a general anaesthetic. I will hear from the consultant in 3 days but just want to know what are the possible treatments if there is a dislocation following a fracture that has been present for more than a year. I am hyper mobile and am often able to put the joint back myself.
