    I'm gutted as I have been told that, despite earlier reassurances, the bones in my mid foot haven't fused. I had a lapidus 20 months ago and have had problems ever since. Originally they thought the hardware was causing the continued pain but I've had this removed and the pain is the same. I have a few questions that I'm wondering if anyone can help with.

    Has anyone else had the same problem and if so what was the outcome?

    Will I damage my foot even more if I continue with as much use on it as I can stand?

    I'm a non-smoker and I did as I was instructed by my surgeon so why did it fail? I am a healthy person on a good diet of normal weight.

    Will a second fusion be likely to fail again?

    Thanks, hope somebody can help.

    I am right there with you. 4 of the fusions have healed. Not the main one. Don't know why. Going in for another MRI. Very disappointed. Still painful. Still hopping around in a boot.
