Had surgery about two weeks ago my stitches feel itchy as well as my whole foot (allergy to iodine). However I also feel a warm sensation in my ankle does anyone else get this? Just want to know if it's normal!

    You still have your stitches in? They took mine out 10 days after surgery. Probably time to get them out, that's why they are itchy, its healing and pulling. Yes my ankle feels hot and burny sometimes, I hear that's normal. If your incision sites don't look red and puffy its probably fine. When do you have your first postop appointment?

      Yep didn’t realize you hadn’t seen him since the surgery. They don’t want you to mess with that splint and wraps.

    My stitches/scar was very itchy until completely healed over. I still have some redness and warmth most days and my surgery was 2 months ago. Swelling from use or having foot hanging down can also cause warmth and itching. All normal unless you have other signs of infection.

    Jaclyn, I sometimes get the feeling you are describing when my ankle is swollen. That's my signal ive been up and moving around too long. I should probably keep my foot up more than I do.
