Re: ankle fusion recovery
I had my ankle fusion surgery with a calcaneal osteotomy on September 29th of last year. I am still having alot of pain when walking. Also have throbbing pain in my heel even at rest. I guess we're all not doing too well here. The thing is, the doctor doesn't understand why I am not bouncing around. He is trying different things but nothing is working.
But to answer your question, after I got in the walking boot, Doc had me go to phys therepy with instructions to "wean off the boot." That includes range of motion exercises as your foot won't be able to move as much as your other foot. so they stretch your foot and massage etc. So I think you should be having some sort of therapy. However, if you're already in your shoes, then I guess you're already good to go.
Did you have calcaneal osteotomy? Also, describe your pain with more detail. And please, please keep us updated with your doctor's appointments and what they tell you. We all would like to know how you're doing and also for our information as well.
