Re: Haglunds Deformity surgery
Welcome to the boards!
I haven't had the surgery you are facing, but I can say that you need to weigh what you would be like with or without the surgery to make the decision.
Is there a possibility other problems could result down the road if you don't have the surgery?
You said you aren't as active outside work and have put on weight; does your doctor say you will continue to get worse if you don't have the surgery? I'm assuming it wouldn't get better.
No one wants to face a surgery which will lay you up for so long, but life doesn't always bring us just what we want.
It would be a good idea for you to visit a 2nd surgeon to get another opinion about this before proceeding if you're able to (not sure if you've already done this based on your comment about seeing 3 specialists).
