Re: Walking after ankle surgery
I had just sprained my ankle about 8 months back. I am currently recovering from arthroscopy surgery two weeks ago because I still had pain and a limp even after 8 months. I am to still go another 4 weeks with crutches, boot and no weight bearing. I am hoping this does it. Maybe see if your dr can get you an MRI if you haven't already to see if there's cartilage torn, or anything that needs cleaned out. I actually had one dr. tell me the MRI and X-rays didn't show anything major and to be patient. After I nudged him further, he recommended his colleague and it was a different story. I saw the surgery photos, there was a lot of damage. Maybe get a second opinion to be safe as well. I personally feel 6 months or more, maybe get rechecked.
