I'm getting slightly panicked at dtr's ankle stiffness 7 weeks after surgery for bimalleolar fracture and dislocation. Has plates and screws. Was in cast for 6 weeks, cast off last MOnday. My husband is physical therapist and he has been manipulating her foot every night and has had her in pool twice. She will start more formal physical therapy next week after next check. Her ankle isnt budging, and he's afraid it's locked in place. Because it's his daughter, he's very emotional about it. I feel like there must be more potential to deelop range of motion after this point, right? Athletics were her life, and Im' just so worried for her future.
