So on my 2 week post op visit they took the splint off and left the stitches in and then casted it to my knee. (my ankle) The PA told me I could start putting partial weight on it with the cast and I have been doing that with the cane. Problem is after trying to walk during the day its beyond killing me with pain late afternoon and evening. I do take the Tylenol 500 mg. now. Not working anymore! Has anyone else had their stitches still in with a cast and did it hurt like heck and what did you do to relieve it? I get stitches out Monday morning and another cast on for 4 more weeks, then a brace and a boot. I'm so ready for this to be done!! The pain is awful this week! And I am elevating it all the time if I'm sitting. Did anyone have more pain after you thought you were making progress??
