Going on 5yrs ago I dislocated my left ankle. Breaking both tibia and fibula. The doctor put 6 screws and a plate in to hold the fibula together. Since then I have nearly 0 ROM and shearing pain especially if I'm on my feet for a while. Like going for a walk, work and cutting grass. The pain is to the point that hours later I can't walk at all and if I do I cannot put pressure down on my ankle and have to have it turned outward. Which causes my knee to hurt. Any help on what I can do or if something was done wrong wouldn't greatly be appreciated. Thanks

    Go to get a new MRI and a second opinion. It sounds like something is still wrong!

    You should not have to live with that kind of pain, how could you work? That does not sound at all normal, look up a top orthopaedic surgeon in your area and get reassessed!

    My son had tib/ fin and spiral fracture with a rod down his leg and plates and screws and he is fine now. One year after surgery he was completely healed and went back to his construction job.

      I would say 8 months he was doing all his normal activities with no issues. He had no pain anymore. You sound like you are doing great!

    You have waited 5 years to ask this?! I would definately push for a review. You should have some range of movement and no pain. Or is this a recent occurance?
