(I'll post excerpts in another response,) but as far as what I experienced, I developed some serious pains in my right foot
about 6 or 8 months post op. I never put the two together, but I also noticed my overall recovery was taking quite awhile. Fatigue, light-headedness, weakness and confusion, but the pain in the foot started to spread. It ultimately moved to both feet and now basically my lower limbs are just shot. Just like you, prior to all this I was quite fit and active.
