Re: mid foot fusion does it work

I had a mid foot arthrodesis on Nov. 23rd. The bone for the graph was taken from the medial side of my anke. I also had a very crooked big toe that caused the bone to protrude like a bunion. That too was repaired.

I have done really well so far. Not much pain or swelling. Most of the time I sit with my foot up. I have a knee walked that has been great. My balance is poor, so crutches scare me. I now have on a cast and will return to the Dr. on the 23rd of December to see how things are healing. The Dr. talked about using a bone stimulator, but he forgot to write the order and is now in Nigeria for a mission trip.

Has anyone used one of these devices and do they work?
