Does anyone else suffer with post traumatic arthritis please? I was not aware that I was "suffering" from any other arthritis before I injured my foot. It has been a long road of trying to come to terms with this both physically, and not least, psychologically. The injury happened 2 years ago. I'm on my 3rd physiotherapist now and my first real psychologist.My foot seems to have gone through a series of changes since the injury but after it's initial recovery thing began to go downhill.This is midfoot arthritis of several joints.
More to the point, I was extremely active, walking, cycling, swimming, running a little. I'm aged 60. Between bouts of sheer anxiety, depression, grief, I make myself try something which might help. I'm finally using an nhs physio (Couldn't stand the wait before so paid privately). He seem to think there is hope for improvement but they have all said that. I certainly need to use it more. My walking is now very limited. I can cycle a bit and swim still. I think I have a fear of using the foot.
There doesn't seem to be a section on the forum for those specifically suffering from this kind of arthritis.]It might make me feel less alone if someone else was sharing my journey...maybe someone who has made progress psychologically at least.
