Hey thanks for the reply! I'm currently in a splint until Friday when I have my first follow up appointment. I'm looking forward to that so I can see my leg and the incision that was made. I'm also ready to get this splint off as it feels heavy and a bit tight on certain spots on my ankle and foot. Pain overall is about a 4-5 when I'm seated and can elevate my foot and becomes a 6-7 when I have to get up. I'm managing the pain with oxycodone and THC so the 2nd week was still painful but not as painful as the 1st week post surgery. Its encouraging to hear that you made a full recovery as I am a active person and look to get to being active again. Although I don't think Ill be playing rugby or football anymore lol. What did you do to suffer 2 ankle injuries at once? Also what was your pain level in the 1st two weeks post op and how did you manage it? Thanks for the reply and support. Its encouraging hear from someone who had the same injury.
