Been to see my consultant today and after having my subtalar fusion operation on the 5th January he has now discharged me! It's been a long slow recovery time but well worth it, am now walking without a limp and virtually no pain! I apparently have a two dimensional titanium screw in my joint, state of the art technology according to the consultant! :D Still having physio to help get the muscles and ankle joint working to its full potential again, but am one very happy bunny!

    Congratulations, jamart, that is very good news and I hope all continues to go well; no limp and hardly any pain is certainly a result and a deserved reward. :D Good luck for the future. DD

    This is great news and a well deserved "reward" for all your hard work. It's been a slog for you but hopefully you're beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

    Well done.
