subtalur fusion

I have had an ankle fusion for about 15 years. (RT) Recently I have been have severe pain radiating from the incision area up the outside of my calf to my knee. My DR suggested a subtalur fusion, I can not see how this has anything to do with this pain my heel does not hurt. I was thinking perhaps a nerve got encapsulated in scar tissue. Can you explain how the fusion could possibly be of help, or should I seek a second opinion?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
