Is it normal to have strong pain in the Physio stage post ankle orif surgery? I fell in December, went to a&e the next day after accepting it wasn’t a sprain! I had a Weber b fracture to the right ankle and potential instability. They manipulated my ankle and cast it then repeated the whole thing 5 days later both times I had gas as pain relief. Long story but after 6 weeks cast was removed and I was put in a boot and asked to walk on it. I did but it was really painful. After a few days I decided to ask for another opinion, this resulted in surgery being recommended asap. 8 weeks post injury I had orif surgery, plate & screws and long screw through both fibula and tibia due to instability. I am now about 9 weeks post surgery, I’ve been weight bearing for 3 weeks. This last week I’ve started Physio and it really hurts! I’ve reverted to taking codine to sleep but still wake up every couple of hours. Is this normal, just another phase??
