HI
i Had an ankle fusion a few weeks ago that worked reasonably well. My Doctor was able to fuse and screw over 2/3 of my ankle with screws but alas the other side was too badly damaged to take a screw. I am now none weight bearing for 7 weeks and have very little post op pain. My question is how does the physio work learning to walk again and what should i look out for as the potential pitfalls?

Hi Doug,
You have come to the right place! We have had many, many people ask about ankle fusion, and have ongoing discussions about procedures, treatments and recovery options.

You can read about other's experiences with ankle fusion: Ankle Fusion EmpowHER.

In the meantime, I hope our community will also answer your question directly and share their experience regarding physical therapy and recovery.
