Question Triple Arthrodesis

Has anyone had a triple arthrodesis to stablize their ankles? Was it successful and would you do it again if you had the choice? Did it treat your pain? How long was your recovery time? I'd love to hear your replies if you've had this surgery!

Yes I had a triple arthodesis after many, many years of suffering and wearing orthotics. It got to the stage they wanted me to have special shoes built to wear and I said no way. I saw many Orthopedic Surgeons and most wanted to freeze my ankle saying I would have limited movement in my foot. This sounded too final so I saw a rheumatolgist who referred me to a Orthopedic Surgeon 2oo mls away. Took me three years to finally get an appointment with him, then another year before surgery but it was worth awaiting for. He took bone from my hip to rebuild my arch and nothing is frozen, perhaps I have slight limitation in turning my foot to the right but I do not notice it. This surgeon is in Calgary, Ab. Canada and does miracles with feet. I was in Hospital for 5 days, left with a plaster cast to my knee and crutches. Saw him two weeks later, then every two months.
At four months I got a walking boot to my knee and could put weight on it. 5 months or so I started Physio therapy for 3 months and just crutches. Slowly with lots of exercises I was ok. I have no pain at all in my foot and total feeling, I am so glad I balked at every surgeon who said they would freeze my ankle joint . If you want the surgeons name you can email me. He will only take referrals from a specialist, not a G.P. (family physician) [email protected] Good luck.
