Re: Walking after broken ancle

Hi Ryan -

I am 3 1/2 weeks since my fixation surgery. You had 2-screw fixation, mine is 6 on the plate and 2 more long ones in the ankle; but I can agree on those odd sensations you mentioned in your first post. I'm in still in my boot, non-weight bearing, and getting those sparkles/needle pokes in various places and times. I don't know about the bruising, as my ankle is wrapped in several ace bandages. Did you have numb-toes too during your boot time?
I agree with Jane; recovery is not a straight line on a graph, more like a oscillating line, and different for everybody.
Keep up the good work!
