I had ankle surgery on Dec 16, I had a fusion and my Achilles stretched, also a bro graft to straighten my foot. I have had pain especially at night. Pins and needles in my toes and my heal feels like it has been scraped and always hurts, yet I have to rest my foot on it. I got a cold therapy machine and it has been a godsend, as it does make the pain more tolerable. I have heard this could be nerve pain and could continue. I am in a Camo boot and supposed to start weight bearing next week. I'm scared that if it already hurts that weight bearing will make it worse and I won't be able to tolerate. I was taking Advil in the day and do T 3,s at night. I wake up 3-4 times a night with the pain and it just doesn't seem to be getting better. My doc gives no answers just says that some people get more pain than others, but it usually goes away. Will weight bearing be painful? Anyone go through this? When did you return to work- I can't see working in pain and I have long hallways to walk at my job.How long until normal walking without pain will happen?
