Hi all, some months back I posted a request for details of life after ankle fuson surgery. Since then things have change and now I am due to have ankle ligament surgery, Taylor procedure I think it's called. Can you please help? What I really would like to know is, will I be mobile again, or, how mobile, as I find it difficult to walk properly at present and can only manage a short distance be for my ankle starts to hurt. The good news is that I am not in constant pain. At the age of 53, and actively fit, the doctor says I am too young for ankle replacement. Fusion was an option, but my GP was dead against it due to further complications, i.e., knee, hip, and back problems. So there it is, an operation looms, and I cannot find any forums or reports on this procedure. Can you please help?
Many thanks in advance - raycas
