I had an open ankle fusion 5 days ago, after the nerve block wore off (after 48 hrs) there was very little pain until tonight. Its like a 30 second pulse of agony in the joint every 30 minutes or so, then not much. The oramorph 5ml lets me fall asleep for an hour before the pain hits again. Am going to OD if I keep taking it though! Is this to be expected?? Is the pain a good or bad sign of successful fusion? Have ankle elevated but doesnt seem to help. Anyone else having this pain?
