Re: Ankle fusion
Sep 2, 2007
Sorry to hear it will take longer to heal! Take it real easy and try to stay ahead of your pain with meds and ice. I have 4 screws and a broken drill bit left in my ankle. They kept the bit in because they didn't want to tamper with the bone any more than they had to. The Doc said the reason why it broke was because my bones were so hard. I am at the point right now after 4 1/2 months, to start walking on my own. It is not easy for me at all. I have one leg shorter ( the ankle fusion side) than the other and it makes it even tougher for me to learn how to walk. I had to get a little bit of an orthodic lift on my sole of my shoe just to try to even things out.

I guess we all are going to have different issues to deal with. The one nice thing about this site, is we can share our ventures with one another and get information, incouragement and hope. Just knowing that someone out there other than your loved ones, can totally understand what we go through.

Take care of yourself and update often.:)
