Ankle arthroscopy and drilling

Hi there. I had ankle arthroscopy and some drilling done 9 days ago. I'm a fit and healthy 24 year old who has been prescribed the usual painkillers etc for this surgery. Everything seemed to be going fine recovery wise, movement was starting to get better in my ankle and pain was decreasing day by day. However in the last couple days whilst standing up vertical there is a real pain in my ankle even when I'm putting no weight on it at all, this even happens when I'm sitting on a chair with my leg hanging. The pain more or less disappears when I sit with my leg up. Would appreciate any views or someone who could share similar experiences. Thanks

Unhappy Re: Ankle arthroscopy and drilling

how is your ankle now? I had this done two months ago. I was just wondering how you are doing. I just graduated from the boot cast to the ankle brace. Still hurts a lot. I am in PT and I go back to doc in 4 weeks. How long does it take to stop hurting?
