As of today, I am one month post-op for a ORIF Medial Malleolus on my left ankle. I had a screw put into my ankle to join a nonunion. I have been partial weight bearing since the day of surgery, and I have been walking on my ankle with crutches since roughly 3 days after my surgery. Still get sharp and throbbing pain in my ankle, particularily the outside of my ankle and in the back of my ankle, around the achiles tendon, with pain in and around the surgical site as well. I have been told this will happen because the anatomy of my ankle has been changed with a screw now in there. What I am wondering is, has anyone had a similar surgery, and what was your recovery like? Am i moving too slow with my recovery with still using crutches, should I be taking bigger steps to try and recover faster? Just seeing if anyone has any pointers or similar stories! Thank you for your advice and have a good day!
