I'm 6 months post ORIF after a trimalleolar fracture. 1 plate 9 screws! Recovery was and is great! Life is pretty much back to normal- I can do everything I was doing pre injury. The only thing is 1, my ankle is SUPER stiff when I first wake up in the morning. I cant just hop out of bed like I did before- it definitely takes a while to work my ankle out in the morning before I can walk "normal". Does that ever go away? Anyone have an experience with this well into recovery? and 2, lately I have been getting this random sharp pain in my ankle when I walk. Its not every day but it's been happening more and more. Like a crippling pain to where I cannot walk on it. I'll rest it and then in about 10 mins it's fine. It reminds me when I first started weight bearing again- those first couple of weeks walking in a shoe gave me the same pain. Anyone experience this as well? All advice is welcomed !!!
