Ankle replacement views
Hello, I hope someone can help. I'm really interested in hearing from anyone who has had an ankle replacement and how they're getting on. I have a left ankle fusion which has been great. My right ankle needs surgery and I've been told I can have either another fusion or a replacement. Amazing since this was not an option for my left. I think two fused ankles might pose even more problems on stairs and uneven ground so I'm tempted to have a replacement so I have some movement. I've been told the incidence of infection, poor wound healing, and failure rate is higher with a replacement. If you've had an ankle replacement, how long has it lasted? How quickly did you heal? Do you still have pain? Do you regret it?
Thank you for any feedback you can give me.
