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
