HELP, NOV 25/2018 I Fell 7 FT out of a tree landing straight onto my left ankle. Dislocated the ankle, Spiral fractured my tibia, SHATTERED Ankle bone, bottom of tib, fib and part of the talus. 2 Surgeries 20 days in hospital. 2 plates and unknown amout of screw were put in. I was non weight bearing for 7 weeks then xrays showed good healing so i was allowed to 25% weight bear a week until 100%. I've been doing pt since 5 weeks, 2wice a week and everyday on my own. I have been totally proactive in my recovery till now, the pain is taking over my positive brain!! Everyday I wake up thinking today is the day i will have no pain or limp. I was told the healing is long, slow and my fracture was a bad one. My ankle is starting to get purple on and off no matter if i exercise or not, pain wont let up either especially at night. I'M hoping to find people that have or are going through this.... Maybe it will help to know this is all normal.
