Talocalcaneal Coalition Surgery
I will be having this surgery in 1.5 months, and am looking forward to it. I have lived with ankle pain since about age 10 (I am now 42), and it was only in my 20's that a CAT scan was done and found that I have the coalition (I had numerous x-rays before that time that never showed it clearly enough). I can't stand more then about 20 minutes without having to sit down and rest my ankles. It's in both feet, by the way. I am pretty active (was a gymnast in my young teens and have kept fairly active since), and have just been living through the pain. I haven't been able to run in many years due to the painful cramping in the front of my calves and just the all over ankle pain. I am hopeful that perhaps I may be able to at least jog a little. Walking without pain would be AMAZING. I will have to get the other foot done also, but I am up for it. I have have had bunion surgery before, so I have an idea what I'm up against.
Any words of wisdom or advice from anyone who has had the surgery?
