Two weeks ago I rolled my ankle at home and went to the ER to discover that I have broken my ankle and will need a BIMALLEOLAR ANKLE FRACTURE surgery. I had to wait one and a half weeks before I was able to be operated on as the ankle was still so swollen. It's been a bit of an ordeal, and I am now 4 days post surgery.
I was given Lovenox injections to do myself for the next two weeks to avoid any potential blood clots. However over the past 2 days I have felt a weird throbbing going up and down my leg that was operated on.
Is this normal? I have also been on Oxy pain killers this week which hasn't been handled well in my body as i am always nauseous and feel super dizzy.
I have a follow up appointment in 2 weeks where I think I will be fitted my boot and the stitches to get taken out. However I feel this might be too soon?
Just wondering when I will be able to walk normal again on my own?
Also any advice on vitamins to take (obviously other than Calcium) that can help aid the recovery?
