I've just found this forum. I have a lateral malleolus fracture of my right ankle, the break was clean though the bone but in the first week it decided to move and I had surgery straight away, an open reduction and fixation I think it's called??
I've never broken a bone before so I have no idea if everything I'm experiencing is normal. I'm five days post surgery and the incision or at least I think that's where it is as I have a cast on and can't see my ankle, keeps burning and the cast feels like its rubbing on an open wound. I did have bad burning pain across the top of my foot but that has eased a bit it's now on the side of my leg. I did have a nerve block before going into surgery I'm not sure this has any effect or not?
Any help would be so great I'm really worried
Thanks so much
