Hi , I am in the uk, and am 16 weeks post ankle fusion , great immediate post op , pain free, cast for 6 weeks boot for 4 weeks , then consultant said to keep boot on for 10-14 days ,, then start to slowly wean off boot crutch ect, i have taken it slowly , but i am in so much pain on first standing up, i take around 2 or 3 mins of hobbling , then it eases and after 4-5 mins it gets better, if i stay up then its great , but if i sit again ant take the weight off , it all starts again when i get up, it is seemingly worse this last few days , but i think i did overdo it 3 days ago , i did around 7000 steps ! im so eager to get back to walking , i thought i could build up my walking , but it doesnt seem to be working like that , it is taking far longer than i thought ,I am going on holiday to Oktoberfest in 5 weeks ! i thought i would be doing so well by then, i just hope the pain is normal, i know the swelling is , but this sharp pain on the inside of my ankle is worrying , as for it bothering my other knee/hip. they are shot anyway ! just looking for anyone feeling the same , to tell me it gets better !
