limping

Posted , 5 users are following.

its been 2 months since my ankle surgery and its been almost 4 weeks since i started full weight bearing. i just have questions about how long did a limp last on you? i have a weird pulling sensation somewhere in my foot and i dont necessarily have pain, mostly just discomfort and my foot constantly feels as if its just sore all the time when will i be able to walk faster or run and jump? i know these things take time but is there any solutions to speed up the recovery?

    I was still limping at 9 months and was unable to jump or run without significant discomfort. I was never able to walk down stairs normally. I had my plates and pins removed at 9 months and within 4 weeks I have started jumping and dancing around the kitchen with my kids. Btw, I am 29 and in good health.

    my limp lasted about 4 weeks after starting to fully weight bear. each week it was less and less noticeable! Everyone is different. I broke my right ankle February 2nd and had surgery February 11. A plate and 7 screws on my outter ankle and two screws in my inner ankle. life is basically back to normal for me! my foot is super stiff in the morning but other than that sometimes I forget I was ever injured 😃
