I am crippled. One year ago I almost lost my foot in a horseback riding accident. My foot was severed from my leg and hung on only by the muscle and skin on the outside of my leg. I received a plate and screws, and a butt load of stitches. I immediately got osteomyelitis and was on a picc line for 6 months. Im o.k. now. It;s been one yr. But now I have severe arthritis in my ankle Dr. says oseomyelitis ate my cartilage so to speak and I am headed for fusion. I am us a cane and a walker because my ankle hurts severely, and is quite swollen after any activity. I cannot work on learning to walk and strengthen my foot from the original injury because of the horrible pain of the arthritis. I am seeing a famously irresponsible dr. Wednesday to get some pain meds. (regular doctor and personal physician wont give me anything stronger than tramadol). Should I get fustion? I see loads of good reports on it.
