Dianelev / donnasellberg,
I hope you are both feeling better and healing!
I have a question for you both since a subtalar fusion might be in my future as well
How was your ROM, especially dorsiflexion, before your subtalar fusion? After my second surgery (OATS) I completely lost my dorsiflexion and with my gait being so off and compensating for that, my subtalar joint is now an issue.
We have talked about a subtalar fusion but I just had ankle distraction to see if it would help my ROM because they said they can't fuse my subtalar joint if I had no ROM, since the rest of my foot would just quickly deteriorate to the point there would be nothing left to fuse or replace if needed.
Sorry this became so long, didn't mean to go into the 'saga' of my foot ... just curious about your ROM and how they feel the fusion would affect things moving forward.
