I recently just got ORIF to fix my tibia and fibula (APR 20) which I broke in a skateboard accident in March. 2 plates and 11 screws later I was put in a splint 10 days and now I have been in an aircast for the past week and 3 days. What I noticed right away was the fact that the areas around the incisions are a solid purple now. They were not purple when the doctor took my splint off which is why I'm worried it might be something serious. I also had an accident slip which caused me to catch myself with my boot. Is it normal to have purple around the incision areas? My sister keeps telling me it does not look like normal bruises because the color is not subsiding or going away. Any suggestions?
