Lauren Fisher has Ankle Surgery

Just got out of surgery yesterday and it went really well. 😁🙌 Life is never easy and always throws you obstacles. Everything negative is an opportunity to get better. And my ankle is one of them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have had lingering pain off and on since I sprained it last year in May and fought through it, as most athletes do… This may not have been the best choice and looking back I wish I had taken more time to recover.🙄 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We get so hungry to compete, to be on the competition floor, pushing our limits and boundaries to be the best version of ourselves, that we often neglect things that require attention. This was the case with my ankle. Some days I thought the pain was a mental thing because it was fine during training, other days I was sure something was not right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All that to find out, post Games, that the injury was worse than I thought! I had a large tear in the tendons, a bone divot and loose bone fragments floating around, which is why the pain would come and go. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After not making the Games in 2015, I wanted nothing more than to be back on that floor in 2016 and I worked toward that goal through everything. This isn't how I have hoped to start my 2017 season and I can guarantee it doesn’t end here….it just means I have to work a little bit harder to get where I want to be. First, get my ankle fixed and then once I do that my goal is to climb that leaderboard. As my dad always said, nothing in life comes easy. #GrownStrong #JustABumpInTheRoad #AlwaysFighting #AnkleProblems ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lastly, thank you to my sponsors and everyone around me for the amazing support. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @nikewomen @progenex @compexusa @roguefitness @performasleep @prime_wellness @cjinvictus @aculove @rasmuswandersen @garretmfisher
