 Re: Pain in ankle since doing exercises

Tilly, it's great being able to remove the airboot - but safer to do so only when you're sitting or lying with the leg supported. It will give protection if you lose your balance on the crutches (can happen).

Also, good to get used to putting the foot (in the boot) to the ground again, even if onlt doing so for balance, not putting weight on it - it's going to feel strange and you need to get used to it.

Can perfectly understand wanting an X-ray for peace of mind. I would too!

Hopefully should be less uncomfortable once the syndesmosis screws are out. I had a Weber B and they were a little concerned I might have damaged the syndesmosis, but thankfully not (based on the fact that I'm back to running ultramarathons without problems).

Good luck!
