hi, i fractured my ankle on July 6 2018. was at camp and was walking on a not well kept trail. slipped on a rock that had let go and fell backwards. long story short had surgery with 18 screws and 2 plates put in my ankle. time went on then about 5 weeks later got a boot. incision wasnt healing very well, had doctor follow up and he prescribed me nurse homecare every other day for 2 or so weeks. went for follow up Sept 20 and he addmitted me right away, had irrigation surgery and tissue sample taken. results showed staph infection called mssa and put on 6 week antibiotics. Piccline was inserted at hospital. completed that Nov 2. End of story almost 7 months later have moderate pain, feels like my ankle is really cool temprature wise i mean. Went for a walk today with my dog and ankle was very painful. Would like to know if anyone else had had a similar situation. Bye the way breaking my ankle has been the most painful hard thing I have ever been through. So I came to this page with hope I am not alone at this point. Read alot of your stories over the last 7 months and very much agree and sympathize with your struggles. Sincerely.
