I am 4 weeks post op of a trimalleolar fracture with a plate, 5 screws, 2 pins and 2 syndesmosis screws between the tibia and fibula. I am NWB for 12 weeks, but at 2 weeks post op I tripped on the crutches and accidentally put almost full weight on my NWB ankle briefly. It wasn't painful, just felt like pressure and brief tingling which subsided. I haven't had any pain since, but I am nervous that I could have broken one of the syndesmotic screws. Has anyone else accidentally put weight on their injured ankle with the syndesmosis screws? I'm sure I'm just psyching myself out but I am nervous I did damage.
