    Hello,

    I am 6 months post op same surgery and my ankle is swollen all the time and rolled it last week walking the dog. Saw surgeon yesterday and now they are sending me for pain management as I might have sural nerve damage, ugh.

      Dear Charlotte

      I would try elevating your foot and applying iced crepe bandages. This should help along with painkillers to keep ahead of the pain and take it a bit easier.

      Good luck
