Hi everyone! I'm 21 wks post op for broken right ankle due to drunk driver hitting me . I have a plate and 6 screws but also a bone bruise on that knee so beginning to walk is difficult. I've only been to pt 4 times so far. They are stretching the ankle and ultrasound to knee. My big toe is still numb and foot is very painful. Swells quite a bit. Pt wants me in a shoe but my foot is too swollen for that let alone I'll have to buy a new pair due to walking differently from plate. Anyone know how long it takes for the pain to go away? I was very depressed recently because I'm getting exhausted from the entire situation. My body hurts everywhere so any advice or uplifting words are so welcomed! Thanks in advance! Best healing to you all!
