I broke my ankle back in February 2018. Posterior and lateral malleolus fracture, along with a torn ligament. No surgery, 6 weeks in cast.
I have returned back to most "normal" activity- except for sports, running, jogging, etc.
I still have a great amount of swelling and have to get an MRI done in July. It is still somewhat painful- I have good days and bad days. Some days I can walk on it almost normally, others I have a significant limp. Some days it has a sharp pain, and other days it doesn't bother me at all.
My question for you all: how long does it take to fully recover? My specialist seems to think I should have been back to sports and fully recovered in April, while my physiotherapist says some people take a full year to fully recover. Can anyone speak from experience, how long it could potentially take and how long swelling and pain stuck around for?
