Hi, just wondering if this is normal or if other ppl have had similar issues.
I had an arthroscopy for a small fracture, arthrofibrosis and clean out and lateral ligament ankle repair in July 2015.
I had a steroid injection for pain, swelling and reduced ROM almost two weeks ago which was excruciating, I shook with the pain the entire and swore a bit... It just came out! The ultrasound report says my ankle joint is scared and thickened.
Since then, my ankle pain and swelling has been worse. It's so bad it aches constantly and my mobility has gone backwards. My surgeon says to ICE it and take nurofen.
My foot is thick and swollen and my blood pooling is worse. My range of motion hasn't changed, if anything, it got a bit worse.?My ankle surgeon doesn't want to operate because I've had hips surgeries too but this is very painful! I have a lot of pain if I put weight on it. I move it up and down etc but it just seems to flare it up. I'm not sure what to do. It's so sore and achy! My hands sweat etc and I have to take 30mgs of codeine three times a day.
I think I need it operated on again to clean it out but convincing my surgeon is so hard!
