Thank you for the article. I'm 10 months post subtalor ankle fusion. I'm in the midst of dealing with the devastating emotional after effects of my surgery. I'm a Nurse and active person. I'm so completely traumatized by the state of my ankle post operative lay, despite the surgery being a success. I've healed just fine, but am in mourning over my loss of function. I've had to get rid of 90 % of my shoes and can't do the things I'm used to doing. I continue to use a recumbent bike daily for strengthening, but walking can still be a challenge. Some days better than others. I am sad that I can't keep a pace I'm used to and that I can't run with my grandchildren. Will I ever run, ski, snowshoe again? I'm not sure...
