I broke both ankles.......left side no surgery. I am now at 6 weeks on left side and been in cam boot the whole time. I just noticed top of foot is partially numb and just started getting shock type pains at times if I touch the area or just random. I had surgery on other side and get some of those shock pains, they come and go, but don't understand the shock pains on the left side since no surgery, I though shock pains are from nerves waking up after surgery.
Could it be the tightness of the boot. Or maybe the injury itself?? I told my surgeon but he didn't say much but did say maybe it is the boot. I am going into my own shoe in 2 weeks if my xray looks ok...which will be 8 weeks total. Overall besides the extreme pain right after I fell that lasted about 3 days, my pains have been minimal, and random, even after surgery. But the shocks are troubling because some are strong. How long do they last? Is it common?? And it is wierd because it is the top of the foot.
