I had a double fracture of the ankle 5 years ago. By and large it healed pretty well and I was able to do most activities like vigorous lengthy walking and cycling until recently in the last couple of months have begun to get bad swelling and pain and some days can barely walk.
I have been seeing the surgeon and working through options. He has suggested maybe a fusion eventually but not now, more likely in a few years. He thinks it can be managed with anti inflammatories in the time being. I'm not so sure . Am becoming depressed as I feel like I'm almost crippled at the age of 47.
Anyway just want to see if anyone has been through something similar and has any suggestions.
