Can you have the bone spurs removed without doing the ligament repair? I got my piece of broke bone taken out without getting the ligaments repair and that helped my ankle problem a lot. The 6-8 weeks in the boot recovery seemed exaggerated for the problems I have, so I opted out on the "big" surgery. The little one was totally worth it!
I just read the terms "shaving" and "bone spurs" and flinched so hard I got goose bumps. Oh my goodness!
