I'm 17 weeks post ORIF for tri mall fracture on my right ankle. On the left side of my ankle I have a pin/screw and a plate and screws on the right side. I am walking indepedently in trainers with a bit of a limp but that does seem to be getting better. I am still getting a fair bit of intermittent pain on the left side where the pin is. Site of pain varies slightly sometimes its over the bone other times underneath it, Sometimes it hurts more when I walk, sometimes it makes no difference if I'm walking or sitting down. On somedays there is no pain at all but most days it is there to some degree. My last xray 4 weeks ago showed bones had healed nicely. My physio did an ultrasound to check for tendonitis but that was clear. I know I'm to expect pain and swelling (which I also have) but I am getting very tired of this injury and recovery. My physio says I'm improving week on week but to me the improvement seems miniscule. I'm feeling very despondent. Once again would be good to hear from anyone further along this difficult journey and get some reassurance.
