Gicki, So sorry you are going thru this. I too had a complete revision after my botched triple Arthrodesis was done by a podiatrist. It took a couple of surgeries to complete the repair. My foot went out to the side as in a ballet first position after the first surgery with the podiatrist. I learned the hard way there is a BIG difference in a podiatrist and Orthopaedic Dr. It is very scarey going into the revision because we know what lies ahead and have been down this road before. My foot is definitely better but in no way perfect. The lack of mobility and the huge amount of time it takes for healing is time we will never get back. Please ask lots of questions and educate yourself as to what you can expect. I am happy to help you in anyway I can.

Macy,

Thank you so much! Since my original surgery I have done so much research, I think I am more qualified in the foot that my original Podiatrist was. I am very scared for the revision but I know this is what I have to do to get some sort of a normal life back. I so sorry to hear you had to go through this as well. How much pain are in now, I hope you are doing better. It is so comforting to know that other have went through this and are doing better.
