Wondering if anyone else has experienced problems with these issues. Would appreciate insight or advice. I returned to work (I'm a nuclear tech at a Cardiology Imaging Clinic) about a month ago after ORIF surgery on a bimalleour fracture. I expected to have pain and swelling but I'm still struggling to get thru the day. I've gone back to using a cane off and on during the day. I have constant pain that gets progressively worse during the day. One area is a ongoing pain along the inside of my lower leg. There are several tender spots that I can pinpoint and I can feel it worsen when I point my toes. I was standing the other day and felt a pop on just under the outside ankle bone and could hardly walk for about 45 min. Then it slowly resolved. It was embarrassing in front of a patient. When I get home all I can do is put my feet up. No desire to go or do anything else. I'm still doing Physical Therapy and taking 800 mg of Ibuprofen twice daily. My job is very physical requiring me to be on my feet all day moving quickly making quick stops and turns. I feel like I am barely getting thru the day. The pain inside my leg is always there.
