I had an injury to my ankle and a cyst and three surgeries to fix it all.
I was prescribed physical therapy for it and I'm walking again, but climbing stairs is still an obstacle.
I'll have to talk to my orthopedist soon about is there anything involved.
I recommend talking with your doctor about anything having to do with stuff wrong with your body. That's what they're there for.
Write down a list of questions you want to talk about, and you might record the conversation.
What I'm doing is trying to do my PT exercises I came home with, at least every other day. I'm finding that keeping up these exercises the Physical Therapist tailored to my condition really has helped me. I can tell how each exercise fits into the other exercises and how they all fit into the act of walking up and down stairs. And I'm making progress.
You do what you can, talk to your doctor, get recommendations on how to get the best benefits.
