Ankle ligament reconstruction post op pain

I had ligament reconstruction 9 days ago and the surgeon ground off a couple bones spurs within the ankle area, too.

I am on day 9 with my 1st follow up appt tomorrow morning.

I have been in constant pain pretty much the whole time with increased problems

Re: Ankle ligament reconstruction post op pain

You've been keeping it propped up above your head 24 hours a day except bathroom trips, right?

Have you tried ice pack behind the knee?

What kind of painkillers are you on?

Keeping it elevated is key.

Re: Ankle ligament reconstruction post op pain

Hello. I recently had ligament reconstruction on my right ankle about week ago (July 28, 2010).
Are you experiencing burning? Because if you are, I am too. I also get pins and needles...
