Midfoot arthodesis
Oct 19, 2014
... Have you researched it to read about it? Have you talked with your surgeon? I am guessing you meant Arthrodesis or fusion of the midfoot. Did your surgeon tell you how many bones in your midfoot he is fusing? Online it says you'll be NWB (nonweightbearing) for at least 6 weeks and up to 10-12 weeks. Some surgeons have their patients NWB for 6 weeks and gradual weight... (1 replies)
... Hello! I'm excited to hear about you being able to walk indoors, but I understand your pain. I just started PWB nearly three weeks ago, and every step (with a walker or new 4-prong cane) feels like a hammer to my ankle/fusion area.

... Hello! I had talonavicular fusion and Achilles' tendon lengthening, nearly the same surgery on 7/16/14. I just reached 10 weeks.

... I am so relieved to be at 8 weeks NWB. I have two weeks to go before I have X-rays to see if I can transition to a CAM walker/boot. I found that about 5 weeks was the hardest for me, as I was getting better physically but started to get extremely bored and somewhat emotional. I felt so much better at six weeks, knowing I was more than half way to 10 weeks. I'm already on... (53 replies)
