Ankle Ligament & Tendon Surger 1 week ago

My husband had his ankle operated on to repair a torn ligament and tendon and microsurgery on cartilage. He went in for surgery one week ago. The surgery took about an hour and a half. He went in as outpatient surgery. His surgery was over by 9:30 AM and we left the hospital a little after noon. When I went into his room one hour after he was in recovery he was was wide awake and very comfortable. They did a block so he had little pain. He was in a splint and wrap. He will be non weight bearing for 8 weeks. The block wore off by the next day and he took pain meds for the first two days. To be honest he was slightly uncomfortable but he was not in terrible pain. Now one week later he is getting around great with the knee scooter. I feel the worst part of the surgery so far is not being able to have the freedom he had prior to surgery since he will be non weight bearing for 7 weeks more. The pain has been tolerable and I feel he is doing very well. He has been keeping his leg elevated and so far swelling is not an issue.
