    Question 3+ weeks to triple arthrodesis

    Here is what I know. I'm 60 and hyper-mobile. I have had a hip and knee replaced from joint wear. Now it is time for my foot. Doc says fuse 3 bones in the hind foot, lengthen and shorten tendons and ligaments, shorten a toe, shove the heel pad over to where it belongs, rebuild the arch. I'm healthy other than the joint issues. I see the surgeon the 11th. What do I need to ask? I healed well after my replacements. How soon can I return to water aerobics? I go 3-4 times a week. Thanks for any info.

    I am 17 weeks post triple arthrodesis with achellis lengthening, a plate screws, 2 pins and a cadaver bone transplant. i too am 60 years old and in good shape, chubby with no health problems except will need a knee eventually.

    I was 12 weeks in a cast amd have been in a boot for 5 weeks using a walker. I have some pain and cannot imagine walking for at least another month...I am not yet allowed to put a sneaker on my foot. I have been told I am doing very well and ahead of schedule. I would say you will not be in water arobics for atleast 5 months (possibly swimming b4 that if you can get in and out of pool)

    You may want to look up my old thread started in early January ...triple arthodesis and I have questions.......lots of infomation and feed back.

    Good luck with your upcoming surgery

    Hugs, Shelly
