Looks like surgery for talonavicular fusion in my future but wondering what kind of pain others have had, how long did you endure it, and was surgery and recovery worth it?  I am having my 3rd injection Wed (the first 2 didn't help but this one being done by a radiologist at a different facility).  Thanks!

    I had my surgery August 2 and I just went back to work last week. I was dealing with the pain for a long time. I also had a tear in my perionl tendon they had to fix. The recovery is long but I would say it was worth it. Good luck

      Thank you.  Initially the pain was in the ankle but I find now that the bottom of my heal hurts almost constantly.  Don't know if it could be related or not.  Will be asking the doctor at next appt.  I sometimes have shooting pains around the ankle, even at night.  Did you experience anything like that?

    Yes, it's a bore but I had mine, on one foot, done in June and I think it has been worth while - the operated one is so much better, almost normal apart from being slightly swollen.  The pain was manageable - I did do as I was told and slowly it fused and I have been fully weight bearing for two months now.  Given that I am 77, it was not surprising that I lost a lot of body strength but that is building up now with just normal activity (I have a farm!).  

    I am up for the second operation next summer ….  those steroid injections can be really magical but the effects don't last, sadly.
