  1. Hi I had the same problem. I could not put my feet together. I talked to two ankle specialists and they both said what you have after 2 years is what you are going to have for the future.
    I am 2.5 years out from the pilon fracture and just had an ankle replacement because the arthritis was so bad. The achilles tendon shortened and the calf muscle never comes back so you don’t get the correct amount of dorsiflexion. It was throwing my hip, knee and back out. Pilon fractures are the absolute worst injuries that you can do to an ankle. It is a life of pain and misery.
    Your quality of life is not the same. Please don’t take this as being all negative. I am just giving you some cold hard facts that I have learned over the last two and a half years reading and talking to specialists. Good luck on this journey
