I broke my ankle nearly 5 months ago (pretty straightforward fracture), and was in a cast for the usual 6 weeks.
Upon removal, I knew something didn't "feel right" (unsure what I'm actually basing this on, as I've never broken a bone before, but when you know you know!!). The doctor was kind of blasé about recovery time/post exercises etc, and had a "you'll be back to normal in a few weeks" attitude.
Well, I'm still having trouble walking without a severe limo and in constant pain, daily.
The ankle bone seems fine, and fully healed. The pain's more on the top of my foot (more so in the crease where it bends), had I'm still having trouble fully bending my toes. Standing on the ball of my foot is impossible, hence the limp when I'm trying to walk.
When I was in plaster, the pains I'm experiencing now, are the same places. Could these just be caused by the cast, and do I just need to be patient?! I was expecting the cast to be removed, and be back to normality in a matter of days (must add here, I'm not very patient!!).
Any information would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to make an appointment at the hospital, just be told to "persevere" with it!
Thanks in advance
