Hi Metatartus,
Your post is interesting as I had the fusion because I was told it is the only good choice, I am young and very active, just as you have researched. The implant I understand will wear out, and although I was in a cast and crutches for 6 weeks the pain is gone and I can run better than before. I too had a complete arthritis of the joint and it was completely stiff anyway.
Good luck, I am certainly happy with my result.
