 Re: Pain in ankle since doing exercises

Tilly, I totally agree with Sarah. At the start it seems like you're making little or no progress, but then you realise you are doing more than you were (try keeping a diary of what you can do each day).

Then there are periods of good progress, and then it seems to stall again, and then suddenly you realise you're doing something you couldn't do before.

Like Sarah, my first running steps were about 12 weeks after the break. I'm now back to running ultramarathons.

I suspect your progress will improve once the syndesmosis screws are out - and even more if you get some physiotherapy. Meanwhile, just pointing and flexing your foot does begin to get the joint moving again, little by little.

Hang in there! It DOES get better.
