How soon after ankle fusion surgery will I be up and moving around?

You may experience a lot of pain after your surgery. Pain medication may help to relieve your pain. It may be helpful to elevate your leg as much as possible after your surgery. You will likely need to wear a splint and use crutches for several weeks after surgery. It’s important to follow the recommendations of your surgery and physical therapy teams throughout your recovery process.
