Hi, im new to this site. i am 17 years old. i had a very bad fall a little bit over an month ago. I had a trimalleolar fracture. i went to bed with my broken ankle thinking it wasnt even broken and it was just nothing and the pain will go away, but it didnt lol so the next morning i went to the hospital. The same day i went to the hospital i got surgery that night, and had an plate and some screws put in. The first 2 weeks were so bad and painful for me i was on heavy medication and was unable to go to school due to the medication. After 2 weeks my staples were removed and i was placed in a walking boot. i am now on week 5 into recovery. Next week i have an doctors appointment and from what i was told, PT is gonna start.. what should i expect from it?? when will my foot go back to its normal color?? how long from now will i be able to walk?? i have been so anxious, im a very independent person. All i do is work and go to school, and i just want to go back to doing that asap. i also went into some depression after surgery, is that even a thing?
