Re: One Month Post Op-GREAT NEWS!

Oh I'm SOOOOO happy and excited for you!! Bless your heart you've been through so much! So glad your doctor realizes all you've been through and is protecting you by continuing to follow protocol! That's awesome that its already 100% fused! Is that quicker than he thought? What's the normal time for fusion?

Re: One Month Post Op-GREAT NEWS!

Happy to hear you are healing well!! I have a question....when the ankle is fused do you lose rom? I know one Dr said that is what he usually does but he referred me on to another surgeon to avoid fusing it. I have never understood exactly what happens when they fuse the ankle. Dr said he would fuse my big toe after stealing the tendon for my ankle. I expected to not have much movement in it, but am really surprised it feels pretty normal.

Hope your recovery continues to go well!!

I missed this! What fabulous news!!! How cool that it fused to fast. I guess it's good he's being so cautious but I wish you were out of the cast already.
