I severely broke my right ankle 20+ years ago in a hiking accident (rotated ~120deg), and it took 2 years and 3 surgeries before I could walk again, albeit with very limited range of motion. Over recent years,my ankle has become increasingly stiff, with reduced ROM and increased pain leading to recent visits to 2 local orthopedic surgeons. Independently they provided the same diagnosis: my ankle is severely worn and should be fused. Ankle fusion like spinal fusion is permanent, and while it might reduce my ankle pain, it might also shift stress to other parts of my body, such as knees, hips and lower spine. Artificial ankle joint replacement technology lags technology for knees and hips, but some CDN ortho surgeons are now replacing ankles, and I hope to meet with one in the months ahead to discuss how feasibile a replacement ankle would be for me. I currently ride a 990 Adventure, and love it, and hope to ride for years to come. I am interested to receive feedback from any other riders who have received ankle fusions or ankle replacements and learn from your experiences to supplement the medical feedback I've received. Thanks in advance for any feedback provided!
