Red Spots around healing bone
I broke my left fibula close to my ankle in October 2011. I had surgery to repair the bone and now have a rod a screws afixed to my bone. My fibula has completely healed. I started walking on it again in December 2011 with the aid of a cam boot. In January 2011, I had another surgery to remove the longest of all of the screws and began walking unassisted in early February 2011. I'm walking without a limp now. I still have a little swelling. The muscle is on it's way to getting back to full strength but not quite there yet. I have no pain, tingling, numbness, or discomfort at all on the leg. It [I]feels[/I] back to normal even though I'm still limited in some things (balancing on that leg, for example).
My concern is this: I've developed little red spots all around my ankle. They're not bumps or open sores. Just tiny spots--no bigger than the tip of a ball-point pen. What is that and is it cause for concern?
