My dr is thinking about putting some sort of material in my ankle joint for a cushiony effect. She really does not want to do an ankle fusion. Has anyone else had this done?
I fell down my basement stairs NOv 2008, I have had pain since. My dr tells me my ankle bone is swollen and has given me steriods injections that did not help. I am 53 and can hardly walk. I have spasms daily that give me great pain. She suggested an ankle fusion surgery then said she has had luck with some sort of material placed in the toe for cushion , she thinks it would work for the ankle. I need to know what other options I may have. I also have bone fragment floating around, she doesn't seem as concerned about the. I just want to walk again. I miss shopping and I need to stimulate the economy! Looking forward for insight. Thanks Tricia
