I had the surgery July 30 and I am still having difficulties with my ankle swelling, and limping by the end of the day. I have to walk and be on my feet most of the day. I feel like I am only doing 1/2 my job as I stay in my office more than I should but the foot is still swelling. I am walking with an ankle brace and wearing tennis shoes.
Have you had any problems with the skin peeling on the heel. I am having those difficulties now and it makes my heel very sensitive.
