Just wondering if anyone has any advice as I’m getting a bit concerned!
Had my left ankle fusion on the 17th May of this year and all has been pretty uncomplicated so far.
Last week I notice a tiny lump just above the inner aspect of my ankle bone. This week it is much more obvious and I’m worries about the metal work in my ankle!
It also gives me a weird kind of dull/throbbing ache at the site of what I think is the top of a screw. I have pretty skinny ankles so I’m not sure if that’s why it is obvious though.
I’ve had lots of ops on my ankle, 7 in total and I do have metal work in my heel which I’ve never had a problem with.
I have no follow up out patients appointment (OPA) with my consultant until the end of next month.
I see my Physio tomorrow so I was going to ask her opinion and then see if I need to get my OPA moved forward.
My question is...anyone else had a similar thing? If so what was the out come?
I was all ready for slowly going back to work next month but I’m worried now that this may set me back again.
Thanks for reading if you have got this far! ☺️
