I broke my talus bone a little over 2 years ago. Bone was not displaced so no surgery, I was casted for 8 wks then went to PT. I am still experiencing pain esp. when hiking in woods, mowing the lawn, walking for long periods. Foot swells at night after doing the above activities. Decided to see a specialist at a well known university for orthopedic medicine. Right off the bat he said I had a dislocated peroneal tendon. I was sent for a CT scan and MRI. MD is suggesting surgery to position the tendon correctly and a subtalar fusion for subtalar arthritis. I've read about fusion and was very put off about what I read and told him so. He said that he could debride the subtalar joint during the tendon surgery but feels that in a few years I would be back in for the fusion. Has anyone had a subtalar fusion? Was it worth it? What can and can you not do once you get the ankle fused? I am very active and want to do all the things I used to do, before my accident, painfree.
