Ankle fusion

Ankle fusion

Has anyone had an ankle fusion? Was wondering how long it lasted. Mine is about 10 years now and I'm actually standing on the inside of my foot. I don't stand on the bottom of your foot anymore so needless to say an operation. Is being set up. I'm scared of the pain I'm gonna be in

I am having 3 bones fused in my ankle very soon. I am very nervous about this. Both of my feet have OA and RA damage and I am walking on the inside of my feet. Tremendous difficulty walking and using a walker, cane and a scooter. How did your surgery go? I hope you are doing well.

I have not had that particular foot surgery, but I've had 9-10 on my left and one on my right foot. The pain is.. Well, painful. Usually it is worth it when I get some good results from the surgery. I hate crutches though so told my podiatrist from now on I get a wheelchair. He is cool with that.
