I hada triple arthrodesis may 16 2011... It has been a long difficult recovery... I had a small spot on the incision line that did not close & turned into a wound that required a wound vac... The wound healed, as soon as I went off the antibiotic infection reared it's ugly head.... Supposedly the hardware was holding onto bacteria... So they removed the hardware dec .5
I'm back in a boot .... Stitches came out today... I still have pain at the bottom outside of my ankle /heel. I'm starting to wonder if the pain in that spot is ever going away!!?? I'm still using a walker & limited in walking because of the pain... Anyone had this problem?
This was supposed to be a 3 month recovery... I'm at 7 months & still have not returned to work!!!
