I am happy to say that I am ten months post ORIF for trimalleolar fracture of my left ankle. For the most part doing great but just have a couple of questions that I hope you all might be able to help me with.
Firstly I still swell. Sometimes not huge amounts but certainly more than previously. I haven't even made it back into most of my old shoes yet. My foot is fine it is just the ankle. Plus I now have a permanent bulge on the inside towards the back. One day a few weeks ago I swelled in a really odd way. Right out the inside of the ankle, while the outside was fine. It looked really odd. But there wasn't really any pain so I just ignored it. Is this all normal?
Secondly the pain. Well not really pain but at times some odd aching. Usually nothing that I need pain relief for but it can be quite uncomfortable. This weekend I didn't really do too much and by last night I started getting a slight pulsing ache on the outside. I can't say it was throbbing but just felt like it was pumping almost. Not sure it that makes sense! And then it seemed to get achy on the inside too. Like I said these pains are not bad enough usually for any pain relieft but they are odd and annoying.
Just wondering what other people have experienced.
