people that have had ankle surgery, how long after did you have to take your clexane injections? i’ve been taking mine for 5 weeks. i ran out yesterday and only realised today and can’t get more in time before i have to take another at 4. do you think it’s okay if i skip this one? or if i just stop taking them? i move around a lot, i can wiggle my toes properly. i’ve got a fibreglass cast on right now. oh and when i left the hospital after my surgery they only gave me a script for 2 boxes. does that mean that was all i had to take? because i went back and got 2 more sets of 2 boxes and injected those ones every day too

    Generally the prescription is the amount that the dr wants you to take unless there are issues. I would think that 5 weeks is enough, but call your dr and ask to be sure

    Hello Tahlia, first I am glad to hear that you are mobile and more 'up beat'.

    Regarding the Clexane injections: mine were discontinued 18 days after the operation. You should ask the doctors because I think that you should have stopped having them as you have been moving quite a bit.

    I have been in the air boot since 10 April..I can put weight when in it but I take it off when resting and at night. My ankle is very stiff, I can move it up and down quite well but the movement sideways is very limited. At the 1st physio appointment yesterday I was told to move it as much as I can. I try but it is very hard though as the ankle is so rigid. I don't have much pain except the sharp pains every now and then which feel like massive voltage shooting through my foot and in the area of the leg where the meral plate was inserted. My surgery was on 23 March. I'd like to know how it is going for others with similar timescale.
