Hi, I fell and had a bemalleolar ankle fx- was able to have surgery (screws and plates) 3 days after the accident so was very fortunate to get it done quickly. I am now 25 days post op and still having pain and still can not have the leg hanging down for more than 15 min due to the increasing pain. I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced this - is is normal? I am not taking pain meds (except occas. at night)- but really thought that the pain/ burning would be gone by now. I have a cast for another 3 weeks then will have a boot for 6 more. Thx for any and all advice- I really appreciate it and am so happy to have found this forum!
