Excruciating Pain After Ankle Arthroscopy

Close to 10 years ago I had broke my leg and nearly shattered my ankle. I have lived with terrible pain every day since with arthritis as a complicating factor. After several trips to various specialists I was told a fusion or replacement was the only answer, but they would start with an arthroscopy of the ankle to really see what is going on and that it may give me some temporary relief. I agreed to the procedure and it was done July 8. I am now in worse pain than I ever was and have been virtually bed ridden since the surgery, but the Dr insists I may start to feel better in up to 3-4 months. Out of the blue yesterday I felt much better and was cautiously optimistic, then woke up today and couldn't even stand on it. I guess the fusion is the only answer. If anyone has any experience or advice, I would appreciate it. This is depressing
