 Re: ORIF post surgery question - Can't bend toes all the way

Hi Mike,

Very sorry to hear about your broken leg.
I also experienced a pretty severe loss of mobility to my toes and foot overall in the months following my injury and ORIF surgery. I had a lot of soft tissue damage and pretty extreme swelling, and that certainly played a role. I still remember the incredible joy the first time I was able to twitch my big toe. I have 3 screws in my ankle, and they are also getting in the way of mobility unfortunately. But in about 1.5 years they'll be removed :)
Good luck with your recovery!
