Hi, I desperately need some advice and from people who have had either an ankle replacement or ankle fusion. Specialists have recommended fusion as I’m only 46...and I really don’t know what to do. Have read lots of research on both and seems I either damage adjacent bones due to them becoming arthritic with a fusion,
Or choose to have complicated surgery later when the ankle replacement fails (don’t know if could be 2 yrs, 5 yrs, 10 yrs). 😔
Really looking for insight(s) from people who have had either operation and their experiences? I would be very, very grateful for any help anyone can provide as it seems the fusion op doesn’t stop the pain? Plus how have ppl coped with recovery.
Thank you so much.
