I suffered a trimalleolar fracture of my ankle five weeks ago. Had surgery two days later; now have a pin and plate in the inner side of my ankle and a plate and screws on the outer side. This has been one of the most frustrating, difficult periods in my life. The immobility and dependence on others for the simplest things is wearing me down. It does not help that my husband decided to divorce me two weeks after my fall.
I had the cast/splint removed after 2 weeks and now have a boot. I use a knee stroller to get around--a real improvement over the walker. I have been relatively pain free until two days ago, when I think I stresses my ankle when I was cleaning out my house. It feels as if someone is sticking a nail into the outside bottom area of my ankle. Tylenol is only minimally effective at easing the pain. Has anyone else experienced this sort of pain? If so, did anything help?
