I had a serious head on collision Feb 2011. I've had 4 surgeries since then. My ankle was shattered and my leg broken. This changed my life in an instant. Here it is over 5 years now and I'm in more pain than I originally had after the accident. My ankle is so swollen I haven't been able to even wear my shoes for years I wear open back shoes year round. I had to move because I can't do steps. I can't walk without pain. I limp and have arthritis now all over my foot. I'm in constant pain and my mobility is awful I can't believe I can still drive. I can't do anything I use to do it has changed my quality of life. My doctor said there is nothing else to do my ankle replacement. I'm really scared I don't know what to do. I'm 60 and I'd like to get my life back but I fear it's too late or it could be worse after the surgery. Has anyone been through something similar relating to an shattered ankle and then a replacement years later? I would appreciate some input. Thanks
