Talus break / cartilage removal

by Angie

the aftermath

the aftermath

Hello:

Two weeks ago, I was hiking and the rock path gave out from under me and I fell 30 feet landing on coral and other fauna. I was fortunate enough to land on my feet, which was the reason I broke my talus.

I had surgery a week after the initial accident because of swelling. When I woke up the Doc told me that they had to remove all the cartilage and add a screw. But, what does this all mean for recovery? I was also told that I might need another surgery to fuse the bones together. I have another appointment this coming Tuesday to find out if he can take out the stitches and give me a boot, (with no weight bearing)

Am I ever going to be 100%? I wasn’t a big runner, I enjoy it, but Id rather be out scuba diving. Any information on this would help. Now that Im in bed “ankle elevated above your heart 95% of the time” I have a lot of nothing to do.

Thanks Angie

Don't listen to the naysayers
by: Anonymous

I had my ankle fused 3 weeks ago. I broke the tibia in a number of places at the joint surface(as well as the fibula). It didn't heal properly, as they warned me is likely. So after a lengthy wait for a CT Scan and a second opinion from a foot/ankle specialist, it looked like it was my only option. However, between the two surgeons, they had a laundry list of accomplishments of others who had the surgery. Climbed Mt. Everest, State Tennis Champion. Since then I've been introduced to a lot of people who still do a lot of activities - like hiking, skiing, snowboarding, cycling, climbing. Sure there are things that are off the list - running further than a city block - but I think it's important to not listen to people who poo-poo your recovery.

fusion
by: Anonymous

They are talking about ankle fusion. That means they will fuse your ankle at a 90 degree ankle and you won't be able to move it at all. Its probably because you've incurred extensive damage to your talus. You will not be 100%, not even 40%, sorry to say. You should really do some of your own research, once you fuse the ankle its permanent. If you don't have any cartilage your ankle will deteriorate very quickly anyway.
