I underwent a surgery for a comminuted pillon fracture of distal tibia 6 weeks back with 5 screws. Can anyone pls help me with the following queries .
- ankle range of motion is still compromised , specially dorsiflexion and plantarflexion. Will it normalise ever , kerping in mind that 2 screws are there on the tibiofibular joint just beneath the lateral malleolus.
- Achilles tendon is very stiff , is it normal at this stage ?
- I still cannot walk pain free and with a physiological gait . when can i expect to do the same ?
