My son had ankle fusion 12 weeks ago and the bones have fused and was told he could start fully weight bearing, wearing his pressure boot for next four weeks.
He is finding it very painful to walk and even on waking it is aching. He iis allowed to remove boot. in bed.
Is it normal at this stage to be experiencing pain?
He is feeling depressed, as he hoped ankle fusion would make him pain free.eight

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

We have an active thread of readers who have gone through this procedure; I suggest you post in there for maximum reader exposure. Also read through all the stories to see if some match your sons'.
