Subtalar Fusion and resetting the heel bone...

has anyone had this combo done? I was originally told iwould need a triple arthrodesis, now instead they have decided to do this other procedure. I am wondering about post surgical sports abilities, such as running and walking.. got some great advice from "Queeneev" on my last post, hoping someone might know about this.. thanks!

Re: Subtalar Fusion and resetting the heel bone...

I had a subtalar fusion along with some surgery on my heel. It was shattered from an accident and operated on, but I was still in lots of pain. My surgeon had to cut into my heel bone and pull it down and secure it in place with pins. That was in March. Most days I am ok but I really don't think I'll ever be the way I was before my accident. I am fearful that my foot is beginning ti turn again but I am afraid to go to see my doctor...I just don't want any more surgery. The recuperation is long and depressing. Paula
