ocd of the talus

I had a lesion or cyst removed from the talus in my
right ankle in july of 2000. it was removed by a
drilling procedure that was done by my doctor.In
july of 2003,I had a cartilage transplant from my
right knee and placed in my right ankle to fill in the
hole where the cyst was removed.I've been in therapy
since febuary of 2004 and I still have alot of pain
in my ankle and I have wakling tolerance from 20 to
40 minutes a day.I also get alot of swelling around
my ankle.I have a small plate with about 6 screws in
my ankle and I have a slot limp when walking. I was
told that this type of surgery very succesful for
other people but, it's been a disaster for me.I'm
only 33 years of age and my step is probably an
ankle fusion.
