I had an ankle fusion to stop pain form arthritis. 6 weeks plaster, 6 weeks boot ha ha!
7 weeks plaster, 10 weeks boot. then 6 weeks weaning off the boot now trying to walk. unfortunately I can only hobble around the house without crutches and very short distances with crutches.
6 months on I'm in as much pain and much less mobile than before the op. I feel like I will never walk properly again!
the front of my ankle, (where fused) is quite painless. the main pain Is on the inner side of my ankle up the leg, where the pins are. can the pins be removed? will the ankle be less stable if removed? anyone had them removed, if so did it help?
