 numbness around ankle after IM nail, plate & screws in ankle
Megan_K    10:09am Feb 1 2020

I broke my tibia (with spiral fracture into ankle malleolus) and fibula a little over one month ago. I had an IM nail placed, plate and screws in ankle.
I think I am recovering as expected although no one has given me any indication for the "normal" expectations following surgery. I still swell around the ankle, most notable near the end of the day. I also have numbness around the ankle; this has improved but still present. I would appreciate reassurance that the numbness is a normal part of the recovery and any personal stories on how long this might last.
