Now ankle pain after fusion!

I've been out of my walking boot since May 21 after nwb for 11 weeks then a walking boot for 4. One day after wb, by knee was terribly sore for two weeks, then as soon as that felt better my ankle has been very sore and still is. Anyone had ankle pain after finally wb after toe fusion? I'm trying to be very aware of every step and do it right and if it weren't for such a sore ankle i would literally have no pain in my foot after years of pain! I've been back to working out an hour a day biking and elliptical and weights and feel i have alot of flexibility back but just can't work out the ankle. If this is what most have experienced after this surgery i'll just work thru it and know it's normal. I start some pt today so hope to get some answers. Any ideas from anyone would help!

Re: Now ankle pain after fusion!

So the fusion worked! That is great. I might have to have this so I am concerned. Was it very painful afterwards? Did they take bone from your hip or do you have a metal inplant? I don't know what to tell you about your ankle. All those weeks of NWB don't help. Will probably take some time to get it to adjust to weight bearing. What did your doctor say?
