Cast and boot gone now pain

Posted , 2 users are following.

I broke my ankle nearly 10 weeks ago

Cast 5 weeks boot 3 weeks

Been fwb for a week and 3 days I've not had to take paracetamol the whole time but the last few days I've started having to take them. Seems the more I move the sorer I get paracetamol helps

It seems worse in the morning when I first get up but am ok once I get going.

Doctor told me it will take 3-4 weeks for the muscles to get back to normal

Am down to one crutch and sometimes indoors I can use none

I no they say it takes 3 months to b ok and back to some normality but I'm not seeing light at the end of the tunnel just yet.
