I’m three weeks post ankle subtalar fusion.    I’m having trouble staying in bed and keeping my ankle up.   I have support of neighbors and husband which I am eternally grateful for but I’m wondering if this is all going to be worth it.    Will I walk normally again or will it still hurt?

    I’m sorry to hear you have pain at 5 weeks. I have to have my ankle fused too. The doc will have to readjust bones because my foot is pronated inward, left foot.
