Question ankle fusion pain

I had an ankle fusion several years ago. Arthritis has formed in the joint and it is very painful. Any suggestions what to do for pain besides narcotic pain pills?

Re: ankle fusion pain

I went to the Pain Mgt Dr. yesterday and he injected my ankle with a steriod. I had no pain at all for several hours then the pain came back. Hopefully the steriods will kick in soon.
