Hi there. 6 and a half weeks ago I underwent an ankle arthroscopy plus micro-fracture after a climbing accident last year. The surgery was to remove the damaged cartilage and a loose fragment which has been causing constant pain whenever weight baring since the accident. On Wednesday I was told by the surgeon that I can now fully weight bare, but use crutches for support in the meantime. Anyway on Friday, I was in a restaurant with my brother. The salad bar was a short distance away from my table, so I decided to walk to there/limp without crutches. Each step was very painful, I should've stopped instantly. I mean all together I don't even think it was a minute worth of steps. But then as soon as I wake up on Saturday Morning, I have pain which is now just been bothering me constantly. I've had this pain the past 2 weeks dont know if its to do with the issue because its close to where the surgery was done, but it hasnt been bothering me at all. I wake up this morning and suddently its 20 times worse, which I feel when I stretch and rotate my ankle to do the PT, whereas before Friday at the restaurant it wasnt like this at all, I would do the ankle exercises with no pain at all. Even when I've been sitting down since yesterday not moving my ankle I feel the pain.
