    WAG Does anyone have experience with Talus OCD in ankle?

    I am currently in a boot, non weight bearing. After six weeks I go back in for X-ray.(currently 1 week, 5 days) Other gymnasts have told me surgery is most likely. That the cartilage won't heal. What do you guys think? Any opinions based off experience?
