Hi all. I am 8 weeks post ORIF for a triple ankle fracture and dislocation. I had 12 screws and 2 plates put in. I was in the cast for the first 2 weeks and then the walking boot for 5 weeks. I started physio for ROM at week 3 and began weight bearing at week 7. I am now able to walk in sneakers and with one crutch. However I find that it gets sore pretty much everywhere EXCEPT my ankle. I'm just wondering if this is normal? Anyone else experience this? I can full weight bear on my bad ankle it just swells up and gets uncomfortable. I can also stand on ome leg using the bad leg as long as i hold onto something for balance. I just need to know that I'm on a good track and that this will continue to get better.
