Hey guys. Im about 4 keeps post op from ORIF for a trimalleolar ankle fracture and a torn ligament. I fractured it on august 8th and had the sergury on the 10th. Im currently non-weight bearing. My doctor said i have to wait 3 months from the original surgery to have the second one(they are going to remove one screw) and until then im going to be non weight bearing. Has anyone experienced this? I don't want to cause more problems to my ankle but 12 weeks seems like a really long time to hop on one leg. Also for the past 2 weeks ive been experiencing a sharp pain right where my incision is. I feel like something sharp is poking me and I know its not the boot. It feels more internal. Has anyone experienced this? I asked my doctor and she said that my xrays looked good and it was nothing. It happens more often at night and i have a hard time dealing with it and falling asleep unless i take my pain medication. I just want to make sure something bad isn't happening so if any of you have had a similar experience please let me know. Thank you!
