Re: Help with subtalar fusion surgery problems
It's been ten years since my surgery. I remember crawling to the bathroom also. Took me about 2 years to recover fully. Have been about 8 years pain free but now things are starting to catch up. What few patients realize is that no matter how good recovery from surgery, things(mostly Arthur) will catch up to them later. You may not realize it, but your body will compensate and put extra "work" on other joints and muscles in your foot and maybe your knees and back. I think that I am lucky that I was 50 when this happened and I will retire in a couple of years.
I am an optimistic person but based in reality. I can't help you with your present problem but would like to suggest to you to think about your future. Think about what to means to future work, sports, hobbies, etc..
I quit hiking after surgery and went back to school to get a job where I could stay off of my foot more. It has paid off for me, but I am glad I wasn't your age.
Think on this and I wish it works out for you.
