Jesse, 

you wrote that you pretty much couldn´t do 10 min squat test before, but now that has improved. What drills have you been doing?
David Green, did the doctor say anything about how you got the bone spur in the first place? Is it because of any past injuries? I´m also wondering if you experienced any pain in the front of the ankle before the surgery, or was it just bone-on-bone?
To all, I´m a bit curious how much dorsiflexion you guys have? Not exactly sure how to measure properly, but I measure with a ruler from the wall to the foot, at the point where I can get my knee to the wall without collapsing or that the heel comes off. I get around 11 cm (or 4,5 inches) before my “bone-on-bone”-feeling occurs.
