I had a bimalleolar fracture, never healed & misalignment . I got arthritis & stiffness on my ankle now so my specialist is saying ankle fusion is my only choice.
He said that he won't do ankle replacement on me now since I am only 20 years old. He said I can get fusion now and ankle replacement when I'm much older since technology is advancing but I was doing some research and from what I read it says once you have fusion done, there's no turning back from that.
So that's confusing?? I need to prepare for an ankle fusion, I never heard of this until now so I've been doing some research on this and many say you'll need to keep your knee & hip in good condition, does any one with ankle fusion know any hip exercises or any advice that will help me prevent any more damage being done to the other joints in my body.... I will be getting my fibula/tibia fused with the talus...
Thank you all in advance, I will really appreciate any advice or hear how your experience is like with an ankle fusion... Take care! :-)
