dislocated & fractured left ankle 5 weeks ago. Underwent 4 manipulations over 9 hrs after foot was pushed back into place.
ORIF followed the day after. Have 2screws on one side with plate and 6 screws on the other side.
Very painful for 1st week and haven't taken any painkillers in the last 4 weeks although I stumbled and fell in the bank a couple of weeks ago but managed to protect the foot!
luckily managed to work from home since 2nd jan - plaster comes off 5th Feb. Looking forward to this but also slightly worried about vulnerable foot!
what happens at this stage? How do you protect the foot or am I worrying unnecessarily?
any tips re physio?
