I fell down the stairs on 6 Dec 2017 and broke my left ankle in 3 places and dislocated my foot. I was taken into hospital as in-patient and had a back slab plaster. After 4 days I developed fracture blisters and had to have urgent surgery and had an external fixator put in place. Had few days at home and then back for surgery to remove fixator and have plates, screws and wires put in. Was in another back slab for 21/2 weeks then stitches removed and lightweight plaster on for 4 weeks then into ortho boot and partial wb for 6 weeks and then fb 4 weeks. Boot discarded and fwb and physio. There were some problems with skin breaking down where plaster blisters had been but all healed now.
In last couple of weeks have been experiencing pain as though being irritated by metalwork. Has anyone else had these problems? Still have swelling in ankle during day and becomes very sore.
