I had surgery to repair my Peronial tendon 5 weeks ago. The wound was closed with clips and I had a cast. 2 weeks ago the clips were removed and a cast put back on for another fortnight.
Now the cast has been taken off and I have been given an airboot to try to move to fully weight bearing on the ankle. The problem is no matter how much I have tried to pad up the centre of the wound over the ankle bone keeps opening up which makes it too sore to put the weight through and makes me not want to wear the boot.
I'm due back at work in 2 days so I need to do something but I'm not sure whether to grin and bear it or even try without the boot.
Has anyone else had this issue please?
