hey guys, I suffered a bimalleolar fracture on 6/27 and had ORIF surgery 7/10. I was NWB until my 6 week check up on 8/15 where my doctor said my bones had healed completely and that i could go to FWB, in or out if my boot. he also prescribed me PT but they are booked for weeks. Since getting the go ahead to walk I have tried really hard every day but the pain is absolutely excruciating. I do exercises I found online to help strengthen my ankle multiple times a day but i am getting really discouraged because it doesn't feel like it is getting any better. it feels extremely tight in the front and back of my ankle and i feel a sharp pain on the inside of my ankle when i put weight on it and i am assuming it is from the large pin that was placed there when i got my surgery. if anyone has some encouraging words or similar stories i would really appreciate it!
