4 years ago I rolled over on my ankle and broke my Tibia and Fibula as well as dislocating my ankle. I was 22 at the time, but even then the doctors said it would unlikely ever be the same. I had ORIF surgery, a plate and 9 screws and I was sent on my way. I wasn't offered any physio as I was making great progress, however after about a year my progress really slowed down. 4 years on my I still cant be on my feet for long periods of time, I get swelling, stiffness in the morning and at night. I've been to my doctors about it and I have now been put on a list for physio but I imagine I'll be having to wait a while. Just last night I woke up with throbbing pain from my toes up to my knee, like I have pulled a muscle.. but I haven't done any exercise to cause it. I get this from time to time. Does anyone else have similar problems? I feel like I have to live my life around my ankle injury, and I've had enough!
