I broke both bones and tore all ligaments in my right ankle (and also broke my fibula about 4" above my ankle but I don't think that matters with this issue). Pain management is good, rarely need medication. I got a plate and several screws on the outside and 2 long screws coming from the inside. My concern is the feeling and sensations in my foot. Some places seem so overly sensitive that I can't touch them because any touch feels like burning, like the skin is extremely raw, and other spots I have almost no feeling at all. Is this normal? I noticed about 2 weeks ago when my splint came off and I got a boot and could touch my foot. It just doesn't seem to be getting better and I'm wondering if it will. Oh and the dry skin?! Anyone else feel like there is a constant layer of super dry flaking off skin under their boot everyday? It's so strange.
