I had ankle stabilization surgery (Brostrom Gould procedure, where they put in an internal brace to hold your ligaments together) 7 weeks ago. After week 6 i was allowed to replace the walking boot with a lace-up brace and ease myself off the crutches. I was able to bear weight while wearing the walking boot. However, now, with the brace only, I'm in substantial pain when trying to walk. My ankle gets very hot, particularly at night.. I was told by my PT to do certain mobilization, weight and stretching exercises but they seem to only make the problem worse. Am I trying to move too fast? How long did it take you to bear weight comfortably after this kind of surgery? I'd be curious to hear about other people's healing schedule after this kind of surgery.
