Good news! Please keep us posted on how your PT progresses!
I saw both of my surgeons yesterday and got copies of my OR notes and learned that when they were doing my subtalar fusion, my subtalar joint didn't move at all, they had a hard time opening it to put in the bone graft, so they said I am not going to miss the motion because I never had it. I thought that was interesting.
They also can't really see mine well because of the external fixator that is on, but confident all should be going well in terms of fusing.
8 more weeks with the fixator... 10 weeks already under my belt but have to deduct 5 weeks due to nerve release surgery which was an unexpected complication 3 weeks after fusion/external fixator was done.
Happy healing! Good luck at PT!
