Ankle Fusion Anyone?


Well, after years of suffering with a bad ankle that is getting progressively worse, it looks like my husband may be facing an ankle fusion.  I’ve been quite preoccupied with this worry recently, and it’s part of my lack of blog postings.  Nothing I read about it looks like fun.  But he can’t keep on like he is, as it’s getting almost impossible for him to even get around on it. He is at the doctors in Amarillo today, while I am here looking up scary things on the internet.  Access to lots of information can be a good thing, and a bad thing.  But I tend to want to read it all, or hear it all, so, if anyone has any personal ankle fusion experience they would like to share with me, either publicly or privately, I’d be interested to hear it.  If you want to share, but prefer to keep it private, just post a comment asking me to contact you back, and I will respond to your comment via email.  From what I’ve read, I understand recovery is quite lengthy.  I’m trying to convince him, though, that if it will result in easing the tremendous, life sucking amount of pain he is currently in, that it will be worth it in the long run.  And that’s all I have for today.
