Im new here & I've had my spinal injury for about 11 years now. I had broken my ankle a year or 2 ago & long story short, it never completely healed & what did heal became deformed. Now I'm facing surgery on it, open reduction internal fixation of tibal fracture nonunion with an implant called hindfoot fusion nail. I was told all the worse case senarios some being, infection, not healing or working & amputation which all these keep going thru my head. So I was wondering if any1 has gone thru before or had advice cuz I'm scared out my mind. Btw I have Kaiser & my otheropedic surgeon has only done 1 of these surgeries in his residency 3 years ago, I'm looking for a second opinion, but it seems like drs dont know much about paraplegia circumstances.
