 Re: Swelling & numbness on top of foot

Im 3 years out from a similar injury... and my ankle still swells if Im on my feet all day. I also have loss of sensation around the incision sites. Nerve damage is common. Although Id still ask the doc on your next follow up.

I hope you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Once I got my cast off, I was in a boot for a few weeks and ready to start walking again. I was driving by the 3 month mark. I hope life will return to almost normal for you soon.

Driving at the 3 month mark, continuing improvement
