I don't know why you would have that. again sorry for all the same post. I did try to answer you after that but for whatever reason it didn't work. best of luck they can help increase

      I had an ankle replacement 11 weeks ago today. It was six weeks until I was allowed to fully weight bear when my cast was removed and I'm still in quite alot of pain but it's improved. I never had pain under my knee. Good luck!!

      no mine was implanted with a plate and screws.. I just started weight-bearing yesterday at about 7 weeks after surgery. so far I am using crutches with the boot although she told me I didn't have to use crutches.
