    Hi Mike
    welcome to the site, hope you will find it helpful. There is usually someone around who will have a similar problem. I have not personally had this procedure, but when a joint is fused it is stabilised by fixing it to an adjacent joint and hence it no longer should cause you any pain. Good luck with your surgery, I hope it all goes well.

    Is this anything to do with the subtaylar joint.I have a problem with mine and have recently had an x ray.I am waiting for results but not yet been contacted,
    I get a load of pain in my left foot and sometimes cannot walk on it especially if i have done a lot of walking the day before and also get pain at night which keeps me awake.
    Best wishes

    Hi Mike i too had to look this up,anyway i had arthrodesis or subtalar fusion done on my left ankle back in 1996 after suffering greatly with pain and inability to walk on it and had no further problems apart from the odd twinge now and again.
    here's a link to what it involves if your interested http://www.wheelessonline.com/ortho/subtalar_fusion
