triple fushion

Had a talus fushion 1 1/2 years ago pain is even worse got to have anpther steroid jab nextmonth and i will need a subtalor fushion...
Question is as a gardener im on my feet all day and my surgeon said my navicular joint is ok but would it be better to fuse this as well because i don't in the future want to go in if the arthritis spreads to this joint...
Any one my age 54 doing a heavy manual job had a triple fushion don thanks

    Not me but my brother in law is a gardener and he had both ankles totally fused some years ago. No more pain he has never looked back 🙂
