Answer

Complications of conservative treatment are continued symptoms that worsen and instability of gait that leads to falls or further injury to the ankle.

Surgical complications vary depending on the procedure. They may include sural nerve injury, continuation of symptoms, chronic lateral ankle pain, and restricted range of motion.
