Hi Mary and Welcome!
It is funny you replied now because I was just thinking the other day about starting a new post asking for advice thinking maybe there would be somebody new to talk with about it.....
Anyway, no I have not had the subtalar fusion yet, but I am scheduled for it next month. The dr says it should relieve all of my pain which is a huge relief. As far as the mobility or range of motion goes, I'm not really afraid of what I will lose because honestly, there isn't much there to lose.
If you click on my name to the left of this post, you can search all of my other posts. I have dealt with a total of 8 surgeries in the last 8 years after falling on the ice and breaking my ankle. You may find good information in my story that can help you with your experience.
Dealing with accidents, life-changing events, and chronic pain can make life difficult at times. I come to these boards, so I can remember I am not alone and to learn from others.
Feel free to ask any questions you may have. I hope you get some knowledge, information and comfort from coming here.
