After several attempts of TAR on right ankle, had to amputate below knee to get rid of unbearable pain. Since amputation my left ankle has become VERY painful and i was unable to walk more than 40 to 50 feet and even then with great pain. Dr recommended TAR. I hesitated for another 6 months before giving in to replacement surgery again, after my past experience on right foot. I have now had TAR on left ankle and a little over 3 months out. Dr wants to go a little slower so I am still in cast bearing only enough weight to help with balance. Even with only this much weight iIam having a lot of heel pain. I had this same pain with right ankle each time I started weight bearing. I M very afraid this one is going to fail also. Has anyone had similar problem? Can anyone give some examples that might be encouraging?
