I had a dislocated and broken ankle on both sides of the foot broken in 4 places including the bottom of the Fibula and the back of my heel. I had surgery 6/11/19, a plate and 2 screws on both sides of the ankle. 2 splints, 3 cats and boot later I'm out of the boot and on one crutch. I had my checkup today and the Doctor is adamant about how I should be walking now without any help and have to go back to work. I am still having alot of pain in my foot when I put weight on it, and am very unstable when I try to walk without the crutch it hurts so bad and I feel like I'm going to fall, I constantly trying to find something to hold on to. I tried and tried to make him hear me, but he refused, and said I have to walk through the pain, and if I had just twisted my ankle and can just walk it off. I am in serious pain, and he seems to care less, I really dont know what to do, should I go see another doctor? Will another doctor even see me? A podiatrist, maybe? I know it's been 4 months, and I am progressing, just not fast enough for my surgeon.
Also this injury happened at work, and I am getting Comp. at the moment, but as I said I am still in alot of pain, and I have been released to go back to work. Is 4 months too long of a recovery?
