My wife did a surgery for ankle ligament reconstruction 2 weeks ago. Her surgeon fixed her torn ligament using a tendon graft (another tissue used to correct the torn ligament) and also stitched the ligament back to the bone.
Ever since the surgery my wife has been under a great amount of pain. She received strong pain medication (Percocet, Ketrolac, Valium) and has been taking them multiple times per day. They seem to make the pain go away for a very short time and then she needs to retake another dosage.
I am very worried because the pain is not subsiding and it has been 2 weeks already. Has anyone here had a similar experience? If so, what should she expect in terms of pain?
