I'm a little over 90 days since surgery. Final (3rd) cast came off a week ago and I'm in a walking boot when mobile and a lace-up brace the rest of the time. Leg had atrophied and couldn't support weight. Needed crutches for the first 2 days, a cane for 3 days and now I'm walking in the boot unassisted. No ankle pain, really, but it gets sore after walking. Taking ibuprofen now and again but no other meds. So far, so good. Scars look great! I'm increasing the time and distance I walk and it gets easier every day. I plan to remain in the boot for another 3 weeks as I practice driving and try to shove my foot into a real shoe. I can see that I won't have much mobility at the fused area and that sucks. But I have good side-to-side movement the front portion still works. I'm happy with the surgery and progress so far.
