I'm 35, male, I had the ankle surgery 3 months ago, and had 2 big screws and pin in my ankle. I have 3 quick questions and would be grateful if you could assist:
1) I am not walking without crutches but with a noticeable limp. I am doing PT, but he's applying passive PT meaning I am in alot of pain every session as he's using manual push to move my ankle motion as it's stiff .. Is this recommended?
2) I'm doing progress in my ROM, but every morning, i feel it's stiff and i can't even walk on it. while after the PT i feel the limp is almost gone. why mornings? and how long would it take to suffer in morning?
3) surgeon after seeing my Xray in 2.5 months, told me that it's healed, and he recommends to remove the big 2 screws, do you think I should do the surgery? I'm very worried that I'll stay home for 1 week or so! and also, i'm concerned that it would cause some issues! what do you think?
