I had a trimalleolar break in my ankle in April 16. It was repaired with a plate and screws on the outside and 2 pins on the inside.
After a few months of problems caused by infection in the outside scar everything has been fine and the docs have always assured me that the bones were healing well.
I was given the ok to carry on as normal with regards excercise and have been running, playing squash etc regularly since September 16 which has sometimes caused aches but not any real pain.
After using the treadmill this week though I've been in real pain on the inside of my ankle where the pins are. an x-ray hasn't shown anything untoward but I can barely put any pressure on it - especially in the mornings.
Has anyone had anything similar? Will it ease off with rest? I'm already on the waiting list to have the metal work removed due to the infections but will this help with pain?
