Has anyone Had sunbtalar arthoereisis
I am in the processes of researching for an appeal for my insurence to approve this.
And now i am second guessing. There is really nothing helpful that I have found. I found alot of things that say its not helpful,The success rate is low, The chance of having to have it removed is high.
My offical diagnosis is Subtalar joint varus. When i am Nwb I have a nice high arch but when i am weigh bearing i pronate tremendously and ahve significant rotational torque on the knee.
I am in alot of pain from my lower back down. Im 23 years old and its gotten to the point where i cant even enjoy my life. My husband and son go out to play and i just sit off the the side because its so painful to stand. and since im on my feet at all day at work I need anychance i can sit.
So has anyone had an implant? did you go another option that helped instead.
I am going for a second opinion next week to see if this dr has any other suggestions since my dr only suggested the implant.
I currently have over compensated orthodics and those use to help but have limited me to one pair of shoes for the last 4 years.
I will take any advice,thoughts, anything because i just feel so stuck and cant seem to fine any kind of answers.
