I was told i have os trigonum syndrome and irregular fluid in my ankle. I still have a lot of swelling and pain. It is difficult to walk on.
Option A: Podiatry surgery.
Option B: Non-surgical Approaches-
Relief of the symptoms is often achieved through treatments that can include a combination of the following:
1) Rest. It is important to stay off the injured foot to let the inflammation subside.
Immobilization. Often a walking boot is used to restrict ankle motion and allow the injured tissue to heal.
2) Ice. Swelling is decreased by applying a bag of ice covered with a thin towel to the affected area. Do not put ice directly against the skin.
3) Oral medication. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, may be helpful in reducing the pain and inflammation.
4) Injections. Sometimes cortisone is injected into the area to reduce the inflammation and pain.
I hope this helps.
