    Hi I've never had bone graft but I had an external fixator for 2 weeks and 6 years later still have the rod from my toe to right under my knee. I'm about to have a total ankle replacement in a few weeks I've been in pain for 6 years this is my last hope for some relief and a somewhat normal life but he thinks the rod may stay in but I'm ok with that. Hope you continue to heal and feel good. Debi

    Hi I has the full ankle fusion with the rod it's OK on the main you get 6 weeks with no weight .then 6 weeks with a little weight on it then on to the ski boot but the best way after that is go to the gym and do a little bike riding as that pulls your foot back round as when you have got the ski boot on you walk like a duck

    Good luck and I am happy to help just ask
