post op oats ankle surgery pain

Hi everyone,
I havent posted in a while. I had my oats surgery almost 3 weeks ago. They used a cadaver talus and also replaced cartlige, ligaments and tendons with cadaver parts. They also did a calcaneal osteomsy (shifting of the heel). I was in the hospital for 3 days due to pain. The pain was getting better until the past 3 days it has seemed to increase. I didnt know if this was normal. I have been keeping it elevated all day. If it is down for even 5 minutes I feel it swelling and my toes turn purple. Once it is elevated again it gets better. The past few days however I have been feeling "like a pole is sticking out of my foot on the top" I didnt know if anyone else had this pain? I didnt know if maybe it was due to the screws? Also we have been having a lot of rain due to hurricane Sandy so I didnt know if it was due to weather. I just wanted to know if anyone has had the same symptoms and if anything they did helped. For this pain elevating and ice are not helping. Any information would greatly be appreciated. Thank You.
