Re: Questions on Ankle Fracture :(

Hi Sid

I feel your pain!

I broke my right ankle in October requiring an ORIF op- basically plate and pins on outside of my ankle. I had a fibula fracture at the ankle.

I can't answer all your questions but on another forum a physio messaged me to say he had rehabbed a lot of people with my type of injury. I think the key thing is not to rush the recovery and ensure you are fully fit before resuming sports.

I can feel my toes but a lot of people do nerve damage. Ultrasound can help with healing once you're doing physio and the nerves will hopefully grow back.

My foot is often purple as the blood rushes there and all the bruising.

Has anyone else been in similar situ to us? Any footwear advice for post boot period? The thought of walking in wet or icy weather freaks me out. I have an appt next week to assess at 6 week point.
