Re: 3+ weeks to triple arthrodesis
I am 17 weeks post triple arthrodesis with achellis lengthening, a plate screws, 2 pins and a cadaver bone transplant. i too am 60 years old and in good shape, chubby with no health problems except will need a knee eventually.
I was 12 weeks in a cast amd have been in a boot for 5 weeks using a walker. I have some pain and cannot imagine walking for at least another month...I am not yet allowed to put a sneaker on my foot. I have been told I am doing very well and ahead of schedule. I would say you will not be in water arobics for atleast 5 months (possibly swimming b4 that if you can get in and out of pool)
You may want to look up my old thread started in early January ...triple arthodesis and I have questions.......lots of infomation and feed back.
Good luck with your upcoming surgery
