Re: Here we go again.....

My OS said that after the 2 replacements then they can fuse the ankle, so you wouldn't be stuck forever, but at least have a working ankle for 20-25 years now while you are younger. That is why I had the replacement. I know my activities will be limited to walking and bilking and swimming, but they were limited before! I couldn't walk before, so if I can get where I can shop at the grocery store, then it will be huge.
The STAR ankle I was told lasts about 15 years.
