On a nice Friday evening at 8:30 pm I took the dogs out and five seconds later I got pulled by the cocker spaniel and within a fraction of a second, my butt landed on my ankle against a solid patch of ice. A week later I had a 3-hour surgery to insert a 4 inch plate and ten screws with one going through two vertical bones. I had several fractures and badly damaged ligament. I am now wearing a boot after five weeks of having a cast. I went into bouts of anxiety and depression. I am taking anxiety, depression, and pain medication. No weight bearing for two more weeks, according to my surgeon. The pain is in the form of pins and measles and aching. I am wondering, will I ever get rid of the pain? Will I ever walk normal. What are the consequences of having a bunch of hardware inside my ankle? I was also told that one of the screws (the long one) has to be removed. What will that do to the level of aches and pain? What are the ramifications of taking norco long term? Any help will be appreciated. Nick
