I fractured my fibula April 2016. It has been a long painful time ever since. Of course the pain is now nothing like it was when I broke it. It has healed and I am walking and pretty much doing most of the things I did prior, except jogging. I still wake up with pain and a limp. I was walking up to 8 - 10 km every other day. Now I am up to about 4-5 three times a week and i pay for it after. Down the outside of my ankle is excrutiating at times especially if I have sat down for longer than 15 minutes, standing up and walking is horrible. Eventually it gets easier but there is always pain and as I said it gets worse again when walking too much. There is kind of a middle ground I think but how long do I have to put up with this. I did my physio as required and I still do some of the exercises at times. I am just getting frustrated and wonder if this is normal all these months out. I am beginning to wonder if I tore my ligamants or something like that. I guess an ultrasound is the only thing that will tell me that. Anyone had continued pain? How long do I need to limp? I have stairs in my home and coming down in the morning is a nightmare and I still have to do one step then both together then another and so on. I would never of dreamed breaking a bone would turn out to be such an ongoing problem.
