    my last day of therapy was today because where the plates pins and screws surrounding my ankle mobility it's keeping from trying to gain mobility so they just stopped my therapy because it defeats the purpose. you should get a second opinion and go from there.

    I did not have an ankle fusion, but while i was preparing for my own ankle surgery, my nurse told me that she had an ankle fusion. i was stunned, since she didnt have the slightest limp. i asked her how she managed that. she said LOTS and LOTS of practice. she added that she was afraid she wouldn't be hired for her nursing position because of the limp and the amount of required walking.
