Pain from Moonboot?

Hi everyone,

I had an ankle arthroscopy 1.5 weeks ago to clean out scar tissue and fluid. I have had barely any pain, other than when wearing the Moonboot. Is this normal? It started out not too bad, would just notice it when I took the boot off before bed. Now it is constant. As I am non-weight baring, I am tempted not to wear it however in a few days I graduate to partial weight baring and will have no choice. Has anyone else had this issue?

Re: Pain from Moonboot?

Hi. I had a lot of pain with my moon boot, but mine was from the boot rubbing on the incision. It got so bad that an infection started on the incision site and they had to take me out of the boot early and put me in a lace up boot. Once I was in the lace up boot - my pain went down significantly. I don't know if this helps or not...good luck
