Hi
Just wondering if there anyone on here that has has an Ankle replacement, as it looks like I might be having one done...but I'm very unsure as it's not as common as hips and knees...would really love some feedback on this. Thanks :P

    Hello, it's nice to meet you but I am sorry you have had to find us. Not many people look in on this part of the forum but if you re-post on the Living with Arthritis board on here hopefully someone will spot it who may have experience of this - I haven't so cannot directly help. I wish you well. DD

    Hello kareyan3 and welcome to the forum. You're right – ankle replacements are nowhere near as common as hips and knees. I have a full set of the latter but did the surgeon out of a job with the ankles as they fused themselves.

    I suggest you post this query on the Living With Arthritis forum where more people are likely to see it. I know there's at least one thread on there about it and I'll try to bump it up near the top. I think it's called 'Total Ankle Replacement Update'.
