Hi, I fell on Aug.29 had surgery on Oct.2,2016. Last week I was given a boot and told to walk and to apply what weight I could tolerate. Still using crutches or a walker depending on the need. Have not be referred to PT. My foot hurts sometimes sharp and dull aching pains. Sometimes it's hot then cold. At times It has no feeling and then it starts to throbes. When I try to walk it hurts really bad feels like my ankle is breaking all over and the bottom of my foot feels like it is splitting,but it's not. I have never had such a serious injury. The swelling is bad when ever I use the boot or put my foot down for an hour or more. I was told to only use boot when getting around. Everytime I put it on it hurts I have no flexibility my insicion on the outside of my ankle hasn't completely healed as well as the inside. The bottom of my foot feels hard and I have layers of dead skin. I have pain on both sides where the hardware was added. They put a plate and 9 screws in my ankle. My doctor doesn't communicate effectively with me and is very hard to understand. Unsure if what I am experiencing is normal or should I get a second opinion. Luckily I have a loving husband and son to help me. But I am so ready to get back to normal.
