    What are the benefits, problems and pain associated with an ankle replacement or fusion?

    I have inherited osteo and psoritic arthritis form my grandmother.  In 1956 she was confined to the house or the car!.

    Things have moved on since then - thank goodness, but I am awaiting eventually having an ankle replacement.

    I would like to discuss the waiting, benifits, problems,pain, and anything else with others who may be in the same boat or have had and ankle replacement or fusion.

    There don't seem to be that many around. 

    Thanks

    Well, I have had an ankle replacement - now 13 weeks ago.  Things going along well and as to be expected according to both surgeon and physiotherapist.
    If anyone finds this ‘follow-up’ and would like to know more - post another comment and I think I get notified and we can have a conversation.
