I had ankle surgery 23 days ago. The surgeon tightened 2 peroneal tendons and also put a suture on my ATF ligament. 2 days ago, the surgeon removed the stitches and put the Aircast SP Walker boot on my foot. He told me that I could walk without crutches, as long as I had the boot.
This morning, I walked very slowly without the crutches and every time I put weight on foot, the upper part of the peroneal tendon was painful.
I called the surgeon because I didn't want to take a risk, and I told him what happened. He told me to use the crutches now, I see him in 12 days.
1 week after surgery, my knee missed a bench and was going down, I pulled my knee on the bench without touching the floor, I yelled from pain on my ankle, I hope this didn't damage something.
I read other threads here and people walk much later than 3 weeks after surgery, but they often have metal in the ankle, I don't have metal in the ankle.
I am getting worried because I couldn't walk like the surgeon expected. Or is the surgeon wrong to ask me to walk with the boot only 3 weeks after surgery? Initially, he said 4 weeks, but he said that my ankle wasn't swelling so it healed well.
