Hi I have a lisfranc injury happened 14 weeks ago just confirmed injury this week with consultant. He said this it is mild but would require surgery, I believe it is the ligament. He said that if we do it now he could use 2 screws after scraping the bone or if I wait 3 or 4 weeks he would have to fuse the bone. What should I do and what is the difference i.e. the long term outcome. Would a few weeks make so much difference. Thanks Anna

Hi for disc prolapse, neuro opted no op, l5s1, discs attempting natural fusion. Nerve regular meds. Have been given lyrics after lisfranc type injury, along with duromine, need 20 kg off. Also have ultraset, altosec. Allergy to sulphonamides and flagyl, will altosec cause problems? Also usually take no meds just swim, but foot triggered nerve pain lumbar area. Can these meds be taken together? Regards Kat
