Hello everyone,
I am a new member. I am a 47 yr old female with osteo-arthritis of my left ankle.
I had an arthroscopy 2wks ago which showed the disease has progressed to the degree where i need either an ankle replacement or an ankle fusion. I am so confused, i dont know which to go for. I am hoping to make contact with others who may have had either operation done, and find out how its worked for them.
Chris :?

    Hello Chris and welcome!

    I'm sorry to hear about your OA and the difficult decision you have to make. It's hard isn't it when you don't really know what's best?

    I know there are other forum members who have had fusions/replacements (not sure if ankle joints specifically tho') and if you repost your message on the Living With Arthritis (LWA) forum I am sure you will get some helpful replies - most of us look there regularly.

    But please do join in anywhere - you will be made very welcome.

    Tilly xxx

    Hello Chris and welcome from me too. I can only echo what Tilly has said. She always gives good advice and I think if you re-post on LWA you'll get some answers. Good luck!
