It's been a year since I was hit and suffered an ankle dislocation along with fractures. It's been a long road and probably more to come. First doctor sent me to specialist who was incompetent so I got a third opinion. I was casted, in boot, 12 weeks of total PT. Then this great Dr I have now did surgery and got loose bone pieces out and cut part of talus bone. It's been 7 weeks. I am still in pain and worse pain than before. He says my Achilles tendon is tight from surgery so I'm doing home exercises and go back in 3 weeks. What bothers me is I can't do things like before .. I can be standing on it for less than 5 minutes and need to sit down. I can't go on field trips, out to stores without hurting, very minimum activity. I do have arthritis from this and swelling . Is this something I'll always have to live with or something that can be fixed? I am only 37. Advice appreciated.
