Hello, My question is; Will I be able to run, after healing from fusion to my foot? Two years (May2011) ago I fractured/dislocated the bones on my right foot. Had surgery to get it repaired. I continued to have pain so I went back and had the hardware removed in Feb 2012. Still had pain after, got on painkillers, had injections, and physical therapy, nothing worked. Went to seek a second opinion with another orthopedic dr an he suggested I go to UCSF to get fusion to my bones. Both UCSF Doctors agreed and i had it performed May 24th. So far it is healing good and less painful than the first week. Im no longer on any painkillers either. My question now is will i ever be able to run once it fully heals? Or will that cause arthritis again?
