I fractured my fibula and dislocated my left ankle on July 13th. I had surgery to repair everything and had a plate and 8 metal screws inserted. The two largest screws which go thru the tibia for stabilization are being removed on Sept. 13th.
I had a second surgery on Aug. 20 to have bone fragments removed from my foot. That was a nasty painful surgery.
I am now almost 8 wks. post injury and have been in a boot for about two weeks. My problem is that when I am not elevating my leg, my ankle and foot go a purplish colour. When I re-elevate it, it goes back to the normal colour.
I am really starting to be concerned, has anyone else experienced this and does anyone know if this is going to be an added bonus to a really painful injury?
I would appreciate any input or comments, thanks so much!
