    I figured that. I am so ready to rip my foot off it hurts a ton today. Did you find that some days the pain was worse than others?

    Yes, it definitely came and went. Though usually for me the "cycles" of good and bad were more like a week.

    believe it or not ice doesn't help either! Its so odd but I have tried it and all it makes it do is throb as does hot baths, but keeping it raised does help a little... Saw the surgeon today and asked if he had read my films and he said not yet but he sounded irritated, but i refuse to apologize for being pushy this is the 3rd time in less than 2 years i have had significant problems in the same ankle. It also looks like the fracture is in a tunnel he drilled during the last surgery so i am not sure if I should be pursuing that angle as well, any advice would be great.

    So a little update. I went to the Drs last Thursday morning and he tried to tell me maybe i need to see the pain clinic and it may just be a nerve issue and not letting on i knew my test results i was like there's no fractures or anything and low and behold there is one in my fibula and at the end of the fibula where he drilled last year, the bone is almost GONE! he tells me ok then cast non weight bearing and crutches for 4 weeks and leaves his fellow to deal with me. Needless to say I know there is much more going on and I now have a 2nd opinion scheduled with Dr. George Theodore at Mass General April 24 the day after the cast is removed. Anyone ever have this kind of issue? I am at a loss as to what to do..
