    R U still using a boot? Seems like you should have been out of the boot.

    I'm 4 months post op from a TAR TAA and still can't elevate on that ankle.

    Can you describe your pain? Any unexpected swelling?

    What does your ortho guy say?

      I'm 4 months after op and it's too painful to even put foot down .. have it elevated when sitting and can barely put down to walk so have gotten knee scooter coz pain intolerable.. am going back to see what can be done this week and opt for fusion if this is not going to work.. by the looks of it now it isn't .. I'm devastated at thoughts of having to wait and then go through all this again.. thanks for reply.

      Recovery from fusion should be quicker but there are other compromises.

      What were your indications for a TAR?

      seems like you should be getting better.

      Best of luck whatever you decide.

    i am 4 months post op now after TAR

    i seem to suffer with slight numbness pins and needles

    i do get pains in my ankle in fits and starts but manageable

    it sounds like you need to go back and get x ray to check all is ok

    my surgeon did say it can take up to 12 months to knit in properly

    good luck
