    Bless your heart. It going to be a long journal to healing. It is the truth! I've been there. You have to take it slow, less stress, resting, eating well is all very important to healing! Please don't try to over do it! My prays are with you! Thank you

    You will experience different sensations after surgery and healing process

    Its a long road back Im not trying to be discouraging but ankles are a tough part of the body to get back to normal

    Listen to your body, take it slow

    They will tell you 8 weeks for healing but its more like a 3-3 1/2 month process

    PT will help do be sure to do PT once your doctor orders it

    Good luck!

    Hi, I broke my right tibia 10/19 and I was in a similar situation. Although I did not have shooting pain to my hip, I had TONS of other types of pains. All I can say to you is that it gets better EVERYDAY. I am still not completely healed (now weight bearing) and I still have pain. You'll never believe the different levels of pain during each stage in the process. If something doesnt feel normal to you trust yourself and call your doctor and ask questions about it. Take it slow and I wish you happy healing. Try to stay positive as much as possible.
