Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

There is no bearing or relationship between triple arthrodesis and your thigh aches.

Propably they may be resulting from a problem in the Lumbar spine (as you are feeling pain in both thighs). I suggest you to undergo an MRI scan of the Lumbar spine to diagnose the cause.

In the meantime, Use some analgesic prepartations, Neurotropic drugs like Pregabalin & methylcobalamine and Ice packing of the affected areas.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
