On October 10th, 2011, I sustained an injury from falling thru a set of steps about 32 inches off the ground. I had to have emergency surgery to stabilize my sub talar joint that had dislocated. 2 weeks later, I underwent another surgery to fix my heel which had split in two, and had screws and other hardware installed. After being in a hard cast, then transitioning to a walking boot, I began physical therapy. That lasted for about 4 months. I am now able to walk, but have varying levels of pain based on my activity. Any movement of my ankle on an un even surface, causes some serious pain. I went back to my doctor, and he confirmed I have post traumatic arthritis build up in my subtalar joint as a result of the initial injury. He suggested several things to help alleviate the pain, (ie, shots, pain killers, limit activity, etc.) I wanted to know how to "eliminate" the pain. He talked to me about doing a sub talar fusion. He would remove bone from my knee area, and do a graft over the joint, and also insert some more screws to totally eliminate the side to side movement in my foot. I have been doing much research on this procedure and have read many kinds of responses. I am looking for any advice from anyone who may have had this done, and what your outcome was. I am a 38 year old male.
