Hello! Maybe someone of you can help, im getting scared. I broke my tibia/fibula and syndesmosis three weeks ago, and had surgery with 11 screws and a plate two weeks ago. My doctor and physio said I should start partial weight bearing right away even with pain, 15-20 kg tops. Physio showed me how to walk correctly, basicly forced me the first day. This, plus exercises, helped, I felt better everyday, to the point where I did not need pain killers and could stretch my foot as far as the healthy one goes. However two days back, I walked maybe an hour in total, and I am afraid I overdid it or maybe put too much weight on the foot. Because now there is a stabbing pain if I turn my foot a spesific way, and there is also a painful hard bump on the inside of the ankle. Also the leg is stiff and sore in general, and im on painkillers again. I called the doctor, but he has not answered, and they told me I should go to the emergency room if it gets worse/I dont feel my toes. Has anyone stepped too much on the foot while partial weight bearing? Did you have pain that went away, or did you need a second surgery? Thank you
