I was told by the surgeon that I needed a triple bone fusion to rectify a severe flat foot problem and I was given a date for the surgery. Up to the date (1/2/16) I was able to have a normal walking life although my foot ached due to arthritis in the heal joint was able to move about normally. Now 6 months on I really wish I had not had it done because I am getting terrible pain and I am dependant on a stick or crutch. I am worried I may not be able to go back to work and if I cant what do I do? The surgeon said when he last saw me that he is happy with the shape of my foot even though I told him I was still in pain and he assured me it was caused by the internal swelling, but I still ask my self every day when will the pain ease. I have had a Triple bone fusion with titanium implants of a post that's anchored into my heel bone and several strips of titanium held in my 6 screws (See image) Like some stories I have read on here I feel I will be left with a permanent limp , something I didn't have before surgery and what happens if I cant do my job, what happens then. I am trying anything to alleviate the pain from herbal remedies to spiritual healing. Does any 1 else relate to my story.. Thanks for reading
