Back in 2015 I was crushed by a 4 Ton swinging door . My ankle was trapped on the other side of it for about 10’minutes until they could free my foot from under the door . I’m currently seeing my 5th ankle surgeon . He suggests that he performes a Subtalar ankle Fusion.. I haven’t heard anything good about this surgery and I’m having a serious debate wether I should do it or not . My main concerns are walking with a limp and my gate affecting my knee and hips. I’m scared I’m limiting myself more as I already have limited inversion , eversion and dorsiflexion . All presenting a lot of pain when trying to move in those directions . Along with the Subtalar ankle fusion , my doctor wants to completely remove my posterior tibial tendon .. this will be my 4th surgery and I’m terrified to make the wrong decision . I’m only 27 now , and I only hear of people 60+ Getting this done . If someone has had these surgeries , can you tell me how you are with activities , I want to hike a mountain again , and run. I heard even walking up steps is hard after a fusion . I appreciate any response .
