Sorry to hear this adiet13.

I offer the following in the spirit of hope. I have no personal experience of fusion surgery but my wife suffers from arthritis in her foot and found running too painful for many (10+ years). She’d tried many options including orthotics and assorted physio, all to no avail.

Very best wishes with your treatment and for your recovery.
