hello, my name's George and last Thursday, I had surgery done on my right ankle for a tibia and fibula break. (in 3 separate spots) as of right now, the swelling has eased up and the pain is completely gone when my foot is elevated. I got about a half foot of staples stitches and I change the cast/splint everyday. anyways, the pain that I only feel comes from me standing up to do a easy task like going to the bathroom, or turning on the light or getting a snack, after doing the task I feel blood rushing to my ankle and it hurts a lot, I'm not on anymore medication but ibuprofen if it hurts anytime soon. when the pain starts, I can't help but just want to lay back down, it throbs and aches for a good 5 minutes and the goes back to not hurting and being completely fine. this is an issue because I'm only 15 and I need to go back to school soon and if I can't really get up with out it hurting and need elevation, how do i walk around all day on crutches and sit in a desk with my legs not elevated. please if you had this in the past, how long does it take to heal and is it supposed to do something like this right after surgery.
