I was a kind of worse case scenario when I had a fusion of the tibiotalar, subtalar, and distal interphalangeal joint on my middle toe to help alleviate some of the swelling and pain that was caused by arthritis on my right ankle/foot. I ultimately had a bad result from the surgery, but my result was a long way from normal. Most people do well after a lengthy recovery, and can return to walking again with a fairly normal gait.

It is a slow recovery, but as long as you listen to your doctors and about the non weight bearing period of I think it was 10 weeks you should do well. Sorry I did not see this message earlier. Do you know what joints are being fused? I wish you all the best for a speedy recovery.
