I had a bimalleolar fracture 6 weeks ago with ORIF to repair. Now six weeks after surgery my cast has been removed. By the end of each day the foot is purple and swollen which dies down again over night whilst it is elevated. So each morning it looks ok again. However I am worried that after my cast removal I still cannot move the joint barely at all and cannot stand on the foot. I am trying to exercise the ankle joint but don’t see much movement at all. It does not flex enough to allow me stand on the floor on two legs even with crutches. How long will this take does anyone know?
