i fell off a ladder and broke my talus in 3 places ,shatteted my talus and dislocated my ankle . it has been a long painfull procedure . 14 months later i am still in severe pain , on large amounts of painkiller including oxycodone and i take anti inflamitary amongst other things . i havent slept properly since my accident . i can struggle to sleep for 3-4 nights at a time . i am in alot of pain and my daily life rountine is usually nursing my ankle . i now have arthritis and the surgeon has arranged for me to have an ankle fusion . since my accident i have got very very depressed . im lost if there is an occasion and i cant put heels on . it may sound very shallow , but i feel like my life has been taken away . i just dont know what to do for the best . i have had cancer 3 times and managed to beat it by throwing myself into the gym . but that is so difficult now . i just feel confused and unsure of the right decision. i dont really want a fusion, but feel i cant keep taking all this medication for the rest of my life ,any advice would be appreciared . thanks sam
