Unhappy Burning pain day 2 after brostrom

Did anyone else experience a burning pain across their ankle shortly after a brostrom repair? I have been icing and elevating and taking meds on a schedule. Is it normal for pain to not be relieved much by Vicodin and Ibuprofen. It's been getting worse throughout the day.

Re: Burning pain day 2 after brostrom

I know that the second day was the worst for me pain wise. The third day was much better. I know that I was told I could take 3 vicodin at a time if needed. Did you have a long acting nerve block? If so that could explain the burning pain? I hope you get relief.

No nerve block that I know of. The pain is at this moment easily an 8. It's throbbing. I'm icing and elevating, but my next dose of pain meds aren't due for an hour.

Re: Burning pain day 2 after brostrom

Where exactly is the burning pain? Might be the nerves waking up. They have to move the sural nerve during surgery. You feel it in the lateral foot and 4th and 5th toes. Is this anything like your feeling? Usually it wakes up a little later, but it can do it anytime. Mine still fires every now and then.
