i having found it enlightening to read theses various posts. I had a ball and socket ankle joint which really did a number on my ligaments and tendons through the years. I first had a fusion mid foot and had Achilles tendon lengthened the first part of Feb. 2015. The first part of April I had the TAR. It seems that when my foot is down, I start having a pain that feels like tightness around the ankle area. Like my foot is in a tight vice. I also get the pins and needles sensations which can really be a annoying. Tomorrow, I am to start walking on the new ankle. Yikes! I am excited and apprehensive at the same time. Look forward to pins and needles sensation to vanish. My incision scar is ultra sedative but imagine that will just take some time. Loyok forward to the day I can report that I am pain free. The pain I felt pre-surgery was mostly due to ligament and tendon injury( like a nail constantly pushing against my foot) and now, well I stated that already.
