I had my ankle fused in March and have gotten the ok from my surgeon to ski again. The problem I am having is getting my foot into a boot. My ankle is fused at close to a 90 degree ankle (typical for walking). I have some flex in my lower foot. I tried on boots at a ski shop in Texas (not a lot of selection) and found that due to the angle, I couldn't get my foot into a boot. I think once my foot is in the boot, I should be ok with skiing. I thought the old rear entry boots might be a solution for getting my foot into the boot, but I'm not sure.
Any guidance or ideas on what to try. I know I'll need a boot to be modified, but right now I don't even know where to start. I'm 57 years old and an intermediate skier.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
