      This will take time. I am one year post surgery for a trimalleolar fracture. This has been a very long road no getting around it. I'm having metal removed in 2 weeks and can't wait. Will be in boot and more pt but it's worth it. Don't be hard on yourself this kind of injury takes a long time to get better.

    I'd say if you're getting pain, you need to take it easy on yourself. Do more gentle exercises until the pain eases.
