I had an ankle replacement 2 years ago. 2 years prior to that a surgeon told me there was to much damage and he couldn't replace it just fuse it. I didn't like that option so I decided to suffer with it. I made it a couple years and just couldn't take it anymore so I went to a different surgeon. He told me that yup its damaged a lot and yup its going to take some extra work but he said it sure could be done. He did it and it was like hitting a light switch. I have a bit of soreness if I walk a lot but theres a difference in soreness and PAIN. Funny thing is dad and I went to camp yesterday and on the way there we were talking. He had a knee replacement done last year. He said his biggest regret was waiting so long to do it because he was nervous. I know we don't get along but I do hope you find a competent surgeon that can get you fixed up.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!
