I had ankle fusion surgery back in 2016. It was done by a professional doctor/surgeon. They just opened up my ankle during surgery, scraped out the bad cartilage, then put 3 pretty long screws/bolts into my ankle. 2 side by side coming down from the calf into the heel, and one going from the heel towards the toes. I can rotate the ankle but it does not have much flexibility, no pain, doctor says I can do work, even lift up to 40-50 no issues. It feels pretty strong muscle tissue-wise even though there is metal/steel in them. it feels pretty good actually.
So, my question is, in regards to the First-Class physical needed for the requirement for flying at Major Airlines is that “Does an ankle fusion prevent a pilot from getting a medical certificate required for flying at a Major Airline?”
Thanks, i appreciated everyone’s answers on this subject.
