Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

The answer to your question lies between you and your surgeon, based on the severity of the damage to your ankle and prognosis for recovery. You will need a pro and con list for both options. You need to have this discussion with your doctor, based on your individual case. Please keep us posted and we wish you the best,
