I broke my medial malleolus on Aprill 22nd (clean frakture - the bone was not dislocated), had surgery on Aprill 30th and now I have 2 pins in. Had a splint on for 2 weeks and then the boot. I was non weight bearing for a 6 weeks after surgery. After 6 weeks, my doctor told me that the bone was healed (could bearly see the break anymore) and that I should start putting weight on. It's been 2 weeks since then. The probelm is that my ankle swells a lot. I am ok a few hours in the mornings and then I can bearly walk (with crutches) even if I rest for a few hours. My whole foot swells to the point where it 'falls asleep' and tingles. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? I appriciate all the help I can get here.
