I'm 81/2 weeks in from a double ankle fusion with an arch reconstruction. I go on the 19th for X-rays & to see my surgeon. I'm sure I will be told to start partial weight bearing in my aircast boot. I have two concerns. First, I'm still having issues with my ankle. The pain feels deep in the bone. I'm not sure if it's the hardware or scar tissue or maybe something worse. I know I couldn't put pressure on my ankle right now like this. Secondly, the incision is so tight..how does it ever get stretched? I massage it several times a day with bio oil but it's still tight. The skin on top of my foot is also tight. I have done nothing but worry these last 81/2 months. Has anyone had similar problems as these? I'm so scared this surgery won't be a success. I need my other foot done also but the surgeon won't talk about it until we see if this one worked. I would appreciate any advise you have for me. Thank you.
