Hi All. Following a severe break in 1986 and plate and pins being inserted into my leg and ankle. I am now suffering severe pain in my right foot. Following numerous ct/mri scans and xrays, I have now been seeing Foot Consultant/Surgeon Mr Winson at Soutmead Hospital in Bristol. After 5 years of various pain relief and steriod injections they planned and ankle fusion. However after futher xrays and scans yesterday they have now told me there is no problem with the actual ankle joint but it is the Talonavicular joint and subtalar joint. They now plan on plating both of these joints and I will be in non weight bearing plaster for 3 months. Has anyone else had this done???
