Re: ankle arthroscopy
I wanted to reply, but really no answer for you. I would recommend calling your doctor and maybe researching on internet. Hopefully by now, you're not in much pain. I had similar surgery. I broke my ankle, tibia, tibulia, and torn ligaments. It's been 7 weeks since my injury (9/7/12) and had surgery 6 weeks ago (9/13/12) and after 3 weeks of surgery he took my plaster cast off and put me in a air walker boot, but said no movement, non weighbearing. Only take the air cast off to shower. It is sore still but not as much and it tingles when I open my boot. I keep it elevated on 2 pillows at least to heart level and at times above heart level. I haven't been good at icing it. I've been trying to work at home while recovering and forget. I still have swelling when I am up on my crutches for over an hour and having tingling around the incision and arch and outside of foot. My doctor told me it's just going to take patience. ~sigh. It sounds like it will just take time.
