    Yes eight months post opp me now..

    Doctor told me keep moving the toes under stade nd why now cozz they do get tight the tendens do...

    Hot soak on a bowl then keep moving them at first I would bend them with my hand little painful. Made them supple four month's in I did this glad now cozz I can move the toes lots...

    When I was weight bearing I could feal them pulling it do get better.

    Paracetamol is all i had and it helped after 4 monthes I used a cream on my foot Aveeno it helped the skin stay supple.

    Ask anything I'll respond keep on getting better respects Mark Welsh man.

    Two breaks and a dislocation.

    I think theres all different types of feelings after breaking your ankle and having surgery

    My pain came on opposite side of where my surgery was

    I did break both sides but right hand side wasnt as bad as keft Thats where all my screws are

    But Im 8 months post op now and still get a little numbness in my toes

    My ortho said it could take a full year for all to feel right again

    yeah I had horrible toe pain, especially my big toe for the longest time.

    It was caused by tightness in the planter fascia.

    The physio worked on it a bit, and I would roll my foot on a lacrosse ball, and try and do calf raises (which I am still not great at).

    It eventually settled.
