I have doctored for almost 2 years with what has turned out to be posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. Many forms of therapy did not restore the tendon. My condition is worsening and now “ankle fusion” surgery has been proposed. I am looking for comments, input from anyone who has has ankle fusion, i.e. what to expect, complications, etc. – I am a very active 64 yr old, love walking, dancing, low impact fitness classes and want to keep up with 5 busy grandchildren.
