7 weeks post surgery! Woohoo!
In a boot for the last week and a half - all new sensations and odd feelings.
I had ORIF surgery having a plate with 7 screws 'installed'. Doc says once elective surgeries are allowed to resume I should have the syndesmotic screw removed.
So my questions for any who have been in my situation -
There was no work done to the medial side of the ankle, I have not started even light weight bearing, but I was told (in the most vague fashion) that I should be able to start when I feel ready...I am ready so I guess I should go for it?!
I do obviously have some slight pain and discomfort as expected, but the odd part is the medial side of the ankle. During my injury the ankle did do a full 180 degrees and clearly that had to cause some strain to the ligaments and everything in there, but there was no surgery needed per the doc...Has anyone had similar feeling of pain in the medial side even with no surgery on that side? I assume this is normal and I am being neurotic (I just couldn't imagine having to go through another surgery right now)
Anyway, hope everyone who reads this is recovering well from their injuries and is staying safe from Covid!
